WHO corrects China virus global risk level to ‘high’

Geneva: The World Health Organization on Monday admitted an error in its assessment of the global risk of a deadly virus in China, saying it was “high” and not “moderate”.
The Geneva-based UN health agency said in a situation report published late on Sunday that the risk was “very high in China, high at the regional level and high at the global level.” In a footnote, the WHO explained that it had stated “incorrectly” in its previous reports on Thursday, Friday and Saturday that the global risk was “moderate”.
The correction of the global risk assessment does not mean that an international health emergency has been declared. (AFP)
