Note: There is now a newer Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Situation Report 59.

WHO Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Situation Report 58

  • One new country/territory/area (European Region [1]) has reported cases of COVID-19.
  • Data presented in the COVID-19 Situation Reports has changed to reflect data reported as of 00:00 CET. As this is the first Situation Report with the new reporting period, there is overlap of data between Situation Report 57 and this report, thus the number of new cases may not equal the difference between total cases in the two reports.
  • WHO COVID-19 Situation Reports present official counts of confirmed COVID-19 cases, thus differences between WHOreports and other sources of COVID-19 data using different inclusion criteria and different data cutoff times are to be expected.
  • WHO, IFRC, and UNICEF jointly released the Risk Communication and Community Engagement (RCCE) Action Plan Guidance for COVID-19 on March 16. For more information, please see the Subject inFocussection below.

Recommendations and Advice for the Public

If you are not in an area where COVID-19 is spreading, or if you have not traveled from one of those areas or have not been in close contact with someone who has and is feeling unwell, your chances of getting it are currently low. However, it’s understandable that you may feel stressed and anxious about the situation. It’s a good idea to get the facts to help you accurately determine your risks so that you can take reasonable precautions.

Your healthcare provider, your national public health authority and your employer are all potential sources of accurate information on COVID-19 and whether it is in your area. It is important to be informed of the situation where you live and take appropriate measures to protect yourself.

If you are in an area where there is an outbreak of COVID-19 you need to take the risk of infection seriously. Follow the advice issued by national and local health authorities. Although for most people COVID-19 causes only mild illness, it can make some people very ill. More rarely, the disease can be fatal. Older people, and those with pre-existing medical conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart problems or diabetes) appear to be more vulnerable.

  1. Why did the section for China’s data get removed a few days ago? Bowing from pressure from China no doubt.
