The new coronavirus has been declared a global emergency by the World Health Organization, as the outbreak continues to spread outside China.
The main reson is not about what is happening in china but so as to avoid the spread in other countries said – WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
The concern is that it could spread to countries with weaker health systems.
At least 213 people have died from the virus in China.
The WHO said there had been 98 cases in 18 other countries, but no deaths. Most cases have emerged in people who have travelled from the Chinese city of Wuhan, where the outbreak began.
