We are now at Phase 5.
This means there has been sustained human-to-human contact and a pandemic is imminent.
“The biggest question, right now, is this: how severe will the pandemic be, especially now at the start? It is possible that the full clinical spectrum of this disease goes from mild illness to severe disease.
“Above all, this is an opportunity for global solidarity as we look for responses and solutions that benefit all countries, all of humanity. After all, it really is all of humanity that is under threat during a pandemic.”
I’m going home (via public transportation, great) to have a panic attack.
