Death toll due to Corona Virus in China has risen to 213. It infected around 9700 people in China and more than 100 in 19 other countries.

Even though China and countries worldwide have launched extraordinary measures, the Declaration of an international emergency will undoubtedly sharpen various governments’ focus on protecting citizens.

The declaration of a global emergency triggers recommendations to all countries aimed at preventing or reducing the cross-border spread of disease while avoiding unnecessary interference with trade and travel.

It covers temporary recommendations for national health authorities worldwide, which include stepping up their monitoring, preparedness and containment measures.

Although the WHO has no legal authority to sanction countries, it could ask governments to provide scientific justification for any travel or trade restrictions that they impose in the event of an international emergency.

Even though WHO has praised china’s efforts but declaration would definitely have increased the pressure little bit as china is racing against time to contain it.

From regular dissemination of information to carrying out disinfection work, from the high-quality treatment of patients to ensuring essential supplies in Wuhan and a hotline, china has mounted an extraordinary fight against the virus.
