Coronavirus: Who is not yet a pandemic but epidemic
"We can not speak of a pandemic, but only of the epidemic" because even if the alert is high, there is still a spread of the coronavirus on a large scale at the global level. This was stated by the director-general of Who Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in the daily briefing. "We need to focus on the containment and at the same time doing everything possible to prepare for a potential pandemic," he added to the empire waistline. "Every Country must make its assessments according to its own context. Also, yes we do, by monitoring 24 hours on 24 the situation," he added, stressing that "there is need for precautionary measures, but not of fear."

But what is the difference between an epidemic and a pandemic? The epidemic is a disease that spreads until it affects a large number of people in a territory more or less extensive. Is developed with performance that varies according to the cases, and expires after a duration variable. As to the origin, the outbreaks may be imported and native. For Italy and Europe, for example, are imported to those of the morbi exotic (cholera). The epidemics spread by direct infection (sick, convalescent or healthy carrier) or indirect (contaminated objects, dust in the air, water, insects...).
