The World Health Organisation has officially labelled the coronavirus outbreak as a pandemic, with its chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus lamenting widespread inaction in the face of the virus’ spread.

This decision has been made in light of the sharp increase of cases outside of China, its country of origin.

Despite the formal change in category, the WHO’s recommendations remain unchanged for the time being.
