January 30, 2020: Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director-General of the WHO, stated that the main reason for the declaration was not necessarily because of the rising number of cases in China, but rather the likelihood of more confirmed cases in countries with weaker health systems that are ill-equipped to handle the health crisis.
