No, this is not specifically about the current Coronavirus outbreak, but I am using it as an example.

The current Coronavirus outbreak has hit at least 4 continents and over 30 countries and almost 30,000 infected, yet they are still talking about "if the virus becomes a global pandemic".

What does it take to declare something a Pandemic???

It is infectious. It has gone global. It has hit an infection count in the 10's of thousands. It continues to spread without a known cure or vaccine.

According to what I have read, that more than qualifies as a pandemic. Am I missing something, or are they just trying not to cause a mass panic in the sheep? Are they only going to declare something a pandemic after the fact, for the history books?
