Based on the WHO report on March 9th, 2020, 8 new countries have been recently infected with coronavirus in the past 24hours (Bulgaria, Costa Rica, Faroe Islands, French Guiana, Maldives, Malta, Martinique, and the Republic of Moldova).

The coronavirus COVID-19 has spread to 109 countries and territories around the world as well as 1 international conveyance (the Diamond Princess cruise ship harbored in Yokohama, Japan).
World health organization has published a response guide to all countries to make them aware and also stop transmission of the disease as much as they can. This is an emergency call for a rapid response service that WHO emphasized.
Medical staff
A comprehensive information package to prevent coronavirus and also relative response guidance in order to make transmission of COVID-19 slower has been globally issued by WHO. Besides, WHO urges all countries to prepare for the potential arrival of coronavirus by rapid action plan, improving the potential to detect the patients and care for them, and ensuring hospitals have enough space, equipment and necessary medical staff; so reliable life-saving medical intervention is in progress.
Some of the patients  considered as suspected cases are as follows:
1. Patients with a severe acute respiratory infection with fever that show at least one sign or symptom of a respiratory disease like cough and shortness of breath. If no other etiology fully explains the symptoms, these patients need hospitalization.
2. Patients with acute respiratory disease and symptoms like fever and coughing with the history of residency or traveling to countries or territories that have reported coronavirus cases during the 14 days before the onset of the condition. 
3. Patients with acute respiratory disease that have been in contact with a confirmed or suspected coronavirus case during the last 14 days prior to onset of symptoms. 
Considering the rapid spread of the disease and in order to maintain health, it is highly recommended to pay attention to the notifications of the World Health Organization. It is also suggested to keep calm and prevent anxiety and stress to improve your immune system. It goes without saying that observing hygiene orders, suitable nutrition and healthy life style, boost our body against any kind of disease.
