Although the COVID-19 virus outbreak has been designated a pandemic, containment is still possible, and there is no need to panic. This is the official advice from the World Health Organization (WHO). 

After he took part in a media briefing at the UN health agency’s headquarters on Friday, WHO spokesperson Tarik Jašarević spoke to Daniel Johnson from UN News about the appropriate responses need by governments and citizens worldwide to the outbreak. 

He started by explaining that each country will take a different approach, but everyone needs to be prepared, and follow WHO guidelines.
