The World Health Organization (WHO) understands that the word ‘pandemic’ is not one to be used lightly or carelessly. If misused, it can cause unreasonable fear, or unjustified acceptance that the fight is over, leading to unnecessary suffering and death. The description of the situation as a pandemic does not change WHO’s assessment of the threat posed by the virus nor does it change what countries should do or continue to do.
