I just briefed #EB146 members again on the #2019nCoV outbreak. I thanked the countries:
- who shared #2019nCoV vital data with @WHO
- who already pledged their funds to support the outbreak
It is vital that we invest now. We have a window of opportunity to exploit now.
I stressed that the world is facing a chronic shortage of personal protective equipment.
This afternoon I will be speaking to the Pandemic Supply Chain Network to identify the bottlenecks & find solutions, to push the fairness of the distribution of equipment. #2019nCoV #EB146
.@WHO is not alone. We are mobilizing the full power of the @UN system and bringing together partners to support countries respond to the #2019nCoV outbreak.

No one country or organization can stop this outbreak alone. Our best hope – and our only hope – is to work together.
