Iran COVID-19 cases show ‘window of opportunity’ to limit outbreak is narrowing: WHO

Cases of COVID-19 linked to Iran are a “worrisome” sign that the world may be running out of time to contain the outbreak of novel coronavirus disease, the World Health Organization said Friday.

At a press conference, WHO director-general Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the news from Iran was concerning.

It’s still possible to contain the virus and keep it from spreading around the world, he said.

“The window of opportunity is still there. But our window of opportunity is narrowing.”

The world needs to act quickly to prevent further spread of the disease, he said.
