The latest WHO report on the Coronavirus situation speaks of "a very high risk in China, high at a regional level and high at a global level".





Initially, in an initial assessment, the WHO had indicated the risk of spreading the virus called 2019-nCoV (known as Coronavirus) which has already caused about 80 deaths in China and of which 769 new cases have been registered in the last 24 hours. Now the rectification has come and the level of risk of the virus from China reaching other countries has passed moderate to high.

It was the spokeswoman Fadela Chaib in a note to explain that the risk had been "mistakenly" defined "moderate" while now, according to the previews of our Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, we could soon start talking about a real and its own "international health emergency".

Again according to WHO data, over two thousand people have already been infected, the majority obviously in China. About 30 would be infected with Coronavirus outside this country. In Europe, currently, the virus has been isolated in only 3 people in France (all of whom had recently returned from China).

However, the situation is worrying because before the quarantine that the city of Wuhan is experiencing in these days (the place from where the infection spread) thousands of people moved not only to other areas of China but in every part of the world and of Consequently, viral pneumonia triggered by this virus could potentially reach anywhere.
