WHO hold off decision on global outbreak of Wuhan coronavirus

BY , Jan 22, 2020 11:32 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

The World Health Organization has put off deciding whether to declare the outbreak of a new coronavirus in China a global health emergency.

It is asking its expert committee to continue meeting tomorrow for a second day.

The W-H-O's Dr. Maria Kerkove says so far the evidence suggests the new respiratory illness spreads only through close contact.

So far 17 deaths have been blamed on the virus, and hundreds of others are sick, mainly in China.
