  • I'm declaring a public health emergency of international concern

  • over the global outbreak of novel coronavirus.

  • The main reason for this declaration is not because of what is happening in China,

  • but because of what is happening in other countries.

  • Our greatest concern is the potential for the virus to spread to countries

  • with weaker health systems and which are ill prepared to deal with it.

  • Let me be clear.

  • This declaration is not a vote of no confidence in China.

  • On the contrary, WHO continues to have confidence in China's capacity

  • to control the outbreak.

  • I'll repeat this.

  • Let me be clear.

  • This declaration is not a vote of no confidence in China.

  • On the contrary, WHO continues to have confidence in China's capacity

  • to control the outbreak.

  • You know, going to the field, visiting countries, you know,

  • having firsthand information is very important.

  • And that's why I had to visit to see for myself what's happening.

  • And I came back so impressed.

  • I have never seen in my life this kind of mobilisation.

  • And maybe you're following the one hospital which is being built in 10 days.

  • Big hospital, but that's not the only thing.

  • You know, the measures they are taking, which I believe will reverse the tide.
