  • World Health Organization Director-General's Opening Remarks at the March 6, 2020 Media Briefing on COVID-19

    World Health Organization Director-General's Opening Remarks at the March 6, 2020 Media Briefing on COVID-19| site |



    (March 6, 2020) - - Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) published the following WHO Director-General's opening remarks at the media briefing on COVID-19: Good afternoon, and thank you once again for joining us in person and online. I would like to start by acknowledging International Women’s Day this Sunday. This is a moment to remember that around the world, many women cannot access essential health services, and continue to suffer disproportionately from preventable and treatable diseases. But International Women’s Day is an opportunity not only to promote and protect the health of women, but to highlight the vital role they play in promoting and protecting the health of all people. Globally, women make up 70% of the global health workforce, but hold only 25% of senior roles. WHO is committed to promoting gender equality every...

Today I want to start by saying thank you to all our colleagues in the media. As providers of information, you play a vital role in the response to COVID-19. The fight against rumours and misinformation is a vital part of the battle against this virus. We rely on you to make sure people have accurate information about the threat they face, and how to protect themselves and others. Now to the numbers. There is now a total of 95,265 reported cases of COVID-19 globally, and 3281 deaths. In the past 24 hours, China reported 143 cases. Most cases continue to be reported from Hubei province, and 8 provinces...

    (March 4, 2020) - - Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) published the following Director-General's March 4, 2020 Opening Remarks at the Mission Briefing on COVID-19:

    Excellencies, dear colleagues and friends, Good morning and welcome once again to our weekly mission briefing on COVID-19. Before I get to COVID-19, a few words about Ebola, the other war-front. We have now had more than two weeks without a case of Ebola, and this is the longest period since the outbreak started, and there are currently no patients receiving treatment. We are now counting down to the end of the outbreak. If there are no more cases, we expect the Government of DRC to declare the outbreak over on the 12th of April. But of course, given the security situation, there could be surprises, but we don’t have any complacency and we will do everythi...

    (March 3, 2020) - - Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) published the following WHO Director-General's opening remarks at the media briefing on COVID-19 - 3 March 2020: Good afternoon, and thank you once again for joining us in person and also online. Today is my birthday, and I’ve been given a very good gift from DRC, from my own continent Africa. We have now had two weeks without a single reported case of Ebola, and there are currently no patients receiving treatment. This is very good news not just for me, but for the whole world – I remember how the whole world was worried about Ebola – and especially for the thousands of health workers who have sacrificed so much in the fight against Ebola, and for making sure we’re where we are. But as one epidemic looks like ending, one front of the fight closing, another is be...

I would also like to inform you that a WHO team arrived in Iran this afternoon to deliver suppli...

Let me start, as usual, with the latest numbers. As of 6am Geneva time this morning, China has reported a total of 78,630 cases of COVID-19 to WHO, including 2747 deaths. But as you know, it’s what is happening in the rest of the world that is now our greatest concern. Outside China, there are now 3474 cases in 44 countries, and 54 deaths. We are at a decisive point. For the past two days, the number of new cases reported in the rest of the world has exceeded the number of new cases in China. And in the past 24 hours, seven countries have reported cases for the first time: Brazil, Georgia, ...

    (February 26, 2020) - - Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) published the following Director-General's opening remarks at the mission briefing on COVID-19: Excellencies, dear colleagues and friends, First of all, good morning and welcome to our weekly mission briefing on COVID-19. I’m glad that we’re maintaining these regular briefings. A lot has changed since we briefed you last Wednesday, which illustrates the rapidly evolving nature of this epidemic. As of 6am Geneva time this morning, China has reported 78,190 cases to WHO, including 2718 deaths. Yesterday, only 10 new cases were reported in China outside of Hubei province. But this is no time for complacency. This is a time for continued vigilance. On Monday, the WHO-China joint mission concluded its visit and delivered its report. As you also know, the team h...

    (February 24, 2020) - - The following is the World Health Organization's (WHO) transcript of WHO Director-General's February 24, 2020 opening remarks at the media briefing on COVID-19.

    Good afternoon everyone. Let me start, as always, with the latest numbers. As of 6am Geneva time this morning, China has reported a total of 77,362 cases of COVID-19 to WHO, including 2618 deaths. In the past 24 hours, China has reported 416 new confirmed cases, and 150 deaths. We’re encouraged by the continued decline in cases in China. Earlier today the WHO-China joint mission concluded its visit and delivered its report. As you know, the team has traveled to several different provinces, including Wuhan. The team has made a range of findings about the transmissibility of the virus, the severity of disease and the impact of ...

    World Health Organization Director-General's Opening Remarks at the Media Briefing on COVID-19 on 21 February 2020| site |



    (February 21, 2020) - - Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) made public the following WHO Director-General's opening remarks at the media briefing on COVID-19 on 21 February 2020: Good afternoon everyone. Let me begin, as always, with the latest numbers. As of 6am Geneva time this morning, China has reported a total of 75,567 cases of COVID-19 to WHO, including 2,239 deaths. In the past 24 hours, China has reported 892 new confirmed cases, and 118 deaths. The significant decline in new confirmed cases is partly due to another change in the way China reports numbers. As you know, last week China started reporting clinically-diagnosed cases, in addition to laboratory-confirmed cases. They have now switched back to reporting only suspected and lab-confirmed cases. This may indicate that the health system in Wuhan have regain...

    (February 19, 2020) - - Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) published the following WHO Director-General's opening remarks at the mission briefing on COVID-19:

    Good morning. Excellencies, colleagues and friends. It’s hard to believe that only 50 days ago, WHO’s country office was notified of a cluster of cases of pneumonia of unknown cause in Wuhan city. In just seven weeks, this outbreak has captured the world’s attention, and rightly so, because it has the potential to cause severe political, social and economic upheaval. WHO, as you know, declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern less than a month after the first reported cases, after we started to see signs of human-to-human transmission outside China. As of 6am Geneva time this morning, China has reported 74,279 cases to WHO, including 2006 deat...
