“Pandemic is not a word we use lightly or negligently. It is a word that, if misused, can cause unwarranted fear or unjustified acceptance of the thought that the struggle is over, leading to suffering and death, ”said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
He added that thousands of people are fighting for their lives in hospitals around the world and that the number of people infected and dead in the days and weeks ahead will be even greater.

A certificate is required to enter Slovenia from Italy from today
Slovenia starts monitoring the border with Italy on Wednesday due to the coronavirus, and all non-Slovenian citizens or permanent residents are subject to controls when entering the country.
To enter Slovenia, foreign travelers will need confirmation that they are not infected with a coronavirus no older than three days.
According to the Slovenian news agency STA, referring to the government's conclusions at a correspondence session, at the Italian-Slovenian border, or in its vicinity, it will be checked whether passengers coming from Italy have a certificate of negative finding on Covid-19 issued by their competent authority .
The certificate must be in Slovenian, English or Italian and must not be older than three days.
Persons without such a certificate may be barred from entering Slovenia, but the control does not apply to freight. Slovenia's health minister will issue an additional provision defining how many hours Wednesday's implementation of entry control will begin, according to a STA statement by the Slovenian government.
The government, on the departure of Prime Minister Marjan Sarac, has announced a decision to close the border with Italy, which will come into force as soon as technical and administrative conditions are in place.
A ban on landing aircraft from coronavirus-affected regions is already in effect at the Ljubljana airport. That decision is valid until the end of the month and will be specified on Wednesday by instructions for measuring the body temperature of passengers.
Due to the coronavirus, two afternoon flights to Belgrade have already been canceled from the airport, a morning flight to and from Frankfurt and an afternoon flight to Brussels and Podgorica in both directions.
Jansa supported the decision to close the border with Italy
The new Slovene government's deputy, Janez Jansa, on Tuesday backed outgoing Prime Minister Marjan Sarac's decision to close the border with Italy.
“I support that decision. In the next few days, we will hold our thumbs that this measure will be able to be implemented by our police and the Ministry of Health in practice,” Jansa said in an interview with Slovenian Television.
The outgoing Sarc government announced that the decision to close the border with Italy would begin to apply as soon as technical and administrative conditions were created. It is not related to the movement of goods, and it was enacted because the quarantine for the whole of Italy was breached.
Jansa also said that co-operation with the outgoing government and the transition of government were good in terms of the virus as well.
Covid-19 is, he said, an “external enemy” who “does not choose the left or the right,” so it must be fought jointly.
Jansa's government is expected to take an oath by the beginning of next week, but Jansa has not ruled out that this process is accelerated due to the current state of the coronavirus and that this is happening this week.
The future Slovenian prime minister advocates the production of protective medical devices for cases of coronavirus infection in Slovenia, for which there is capacity.
“We need to organize ourselves to produce these funds for our own needs and at regulated prices,” Jansa said.
Should the second phase of the spread of coronavirus infection be declared in Slovenia, which is not the case at the moment, a crisis headquarters would begin to operate, involving the entire government, ie most ministers, as well as civil protection and experts, Jansa said.
