$675 million needed to fight new coronavirus outbreak WHO

$675 million needed to fight new coronavirus outbreak WHO”

Last week, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the 2019-nCoV outbreak a "public health emergency of worldwide concern" due to its spread to countries that are not prepared.

The amount would allow them to carry out their strategic plan which will take place from February to April.

"The effectiveness of outbreak response depends on the preparedness measures put in place before outbreaks strike". In all other countries, 191 cases have contracted the virus.

'Sixty million of that is to fund WHO's operations; the rest is for the countries that are especially at risk and who need our support.

Mr Tedros said that in the last 24 hours, the United Nations health agency has seen the biggest jump in cases since the start of the outbreak.

More than 20 countries have also confirmed cases of coronavirus, which also prompted the WHO to declare a global health emergency.

Medical staff members preparing equipment to meet passengers of a military plane, which evacuated citizens of Russia and ex-Soviet countries from China's Wuhan province, the epicentre of an outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic, are seen through a bus window at the Roshchino International Airport outside Tyumen, Russia.

The donations are needed for outbreak preparedness in the coming three months, he added. Till date, 3 out of the 498 tested are confirmed laboratory positive for nCoV that are in Kerala. However, the implementation varies from state to state. Invest today or pay more later'.

This has made many countries heighten their surveillance across the borders and port entries.

According to the World Health Organization constitution, the organisation is primarily funded through contributions from member countries, which are know as "assessed contributions" because their size is determined based on a respective country's wealth and population.

Gilead said it had increased manufacturing of remdesivir to create a stockpile that might be used in future viral disease outbreaks.

India is a signatory to the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA) that provides a framework to prevent, detect, and rapidly respond to infectious disease threats.

"Regular capacity development of its public heath workforce and frontline workers is required to handle outbreaks efficiently keeping in mind the globally accepted protocols".

"The funding will help strengthen detection, isolation and treatment efforts; protect at-risk populations; and develop vaccines, treatments and diagnostics", the foundation said.
