But the United Nations health agency's chief also called for greater solidarity, accusing some governments of wealthy countries of being "well behind" in sharing data on virus cases.

"Today we're launching a strategic preparedness and response plan. for the next three months", Mr Tedros said.

"That doesn't mean that it won't get worse".

We are at the phase where it is an epidemic with multiple foci, says Sylvie Briand.

World Health Organization was at the forefront of efforts to curb the spread of the virus that started in Wuhan, China in December 2019.


"Some high-income countries are well behind in sharing this vital data with WHO". "They are paying a lot", he said. But experts are still struggling to pinpoint the origin of the outbreak, and its host, and come up with a vaccine or treatment, officials said.

The first case of Coronavirus epidemic was reported in Wuhan, China by Dr Li Wenliang who was called a rumour-monger by the Wuhan Police in December.

"The objectives of the plan are to limit human-to-human transmission of the virus, particularly in countries most vulnerable if they were to face an outbreak; identify and isolate and care for patients early".

"Urgent support is needed to bolster weak health systems to detect, diagnose and care for people with the virus, to prevent further human-to-human transmission and protect health workers", Ghebreyesus said.

China hopes that the U.S. will assess the epidemic in a calm manner, and adopt and adjust its response measures in a reasonable way, Xi said, adding that the two sides can maintain communication, strengthen coordination and work together to contain the epidemic.


The third case was confirmed by the Department for Health on Tuesday afternoon, after two people fell ill with the virus in York last week.

A number of country representatives voiced concerns about the situation at home.

Speaking in Geneva, he said the rate of new cases had slowed across China, though warned off taking too much solace from that.

"We are extremely short of money..."

WHO officials said high-capacity labs around the world have filled a critical gap by accepting referral samples from countries that aren't able to test for coronavirus.


World Health Organization officials also discussed whether asymptomatic patients are contagious, which they have said is a big barrier to progress in containing the spread of the virus.
