Update (1445ET): After WHO Director Dr. Tedros didn’t say the words ‘global emergency’ in the first two minutes of the WHO’s Thursday press conference, stocks jumped, but were quickly stymied when he finally got around to the announce after a lengthy preamble: The WHO has officially declared the coronavirus a ‘ Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC).’

Once again, the director emphasized the fact that there haven’t been any recorded deaths outside China, while praising Beijing’s response, an obvious attempt to soften the blow.

Now that the label has been invoked, the WHO can begin coordinating a multi-government response.

WHO doesn’t recommend any travel or trade restrictions.
