Facts about the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) – WHO:

The number of reported cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) is increasing as more cases are being identified. At the same time, the number of people being tested is increasing, as more countries do systematic testing. It is important to put figures into perspective:

The #coronavirus threatens few compared to familiar flu viruses. Based on its weekly influenza report, the CDC estimates that there have been more than 15 million cases of the flu and more than 8,200 deaths in the 2019-2020 flu season in the U.S. alone.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) continues to update healthcare professionals on evolving facts. You can get the latest information on the WHO website:  http://who.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/c88e37cfc43b4ed3baf977d77e4a0667
