GENEVA, March 13 — A total of 44,067 confirmed cases of COVID-19 were reported by 117 countries and regions outside China as of 10:00 CET Thursday, an increase of 6,703 infections compared to the previous day, according to the daily situation report released by the World Health Organisation (WHO).

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Thursday reiterated that countries should not give up on stopping the outbreak now that WHO has characterized it as a pandemic.

He warned a shift from containment to the mitigation of the disease would be wrong and dangerous, emphasizing COVID-19 is “a controllable pandemic.”

Besides, WHO has revised the transmission classification of Brunei, Luxembourg, Qatar, Kuwait, Morocco and Panama from “imported cases only” to “local transmission”, while Pakistan was reclassified from “local transmission” to “imported cases only”.

The report showed 71 countries and regions outside China have seen local transmission of COVID-19.
