The new coronavirus epidemic is at a "decisive point" globally, World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Thursday, urging affected countries to "move swiftly" to contain the disease.

"We're at a decisive point," Tedros said, adding: "If you act aggressively now, you can contain this virus, you can prevent people getting sick, you can save lives".
