The World Organization of Health declared the smallpox as a global health emergency after an increase in cases in all the world.

La clasificación es la alerta más alta que la OMS puede mitir y la decision fue tomada este sábado tras una segunda reunión del comité de emergency del organismo sobre el virus.

This was announced by the director general of the WHO, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, two days after an emergency committee with experts in this disease met for the first time before analyzing the possible statement, which obligará a las redes sanitarias nacionales a aumentar sus medidas preventiveas.

Hasta ahora se han reportado más de 16,000 cases in 75 countriesaccording to Tedros.
