Test every suspected case of COVID-19 - WHO

The World Health Organization has warned that the coronavirus pandemic is a "defining global health crisis of our time", as it urged countries to test all suspected cases.

The United States and countries across Europe have closed schools, entertainment venues and all but essential services, in an effort to combat the virus.

Governments are limiting travel - both inward and outward - to curb the movement of people. South Korea and China, both wary of imported infections, have tightened requirements for international arrivals.

More cases are now being reported outside China, where the virus called COVID-19 first originated late last year, than inside.

Globally, the virus has now infected more than 168,000 people and killed at least 6,610, according to the WHO.
