From the Highlights: "[1] Four new countries/territories/areas (French Polynesia, Turkey, Honduras and Côte d'Ivoire) have reported cases of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] in the past 24 hours. [2] The Clinical Unit continues to convene clinicians around the globe, twice weekly by teleconference (COVID-19 Clinical Network) to share knowledge and experiences from clinicians caring for COVID-19 patients and highlight operational challenges and technical questions. [...3] At the Member States information session held today, WHO [World Health Organization] Director-General reiterated that countries should not give up on stopping the outbreak now that WHO has characterized it as a pandemic. A shift from containment to mitigation would be wrong and dangerous. This is a controllable pandemic. [...4] On 11 March, ICAO [International Civil Aviation Organization] and WHO issued a joint statement to reminding all stakeholders of the importance of existing regulations and guidance."
