February 16, 2019 05:15:46The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is predicting that more than 30,000 new cases of coronaviruses will be reported worldwide in 2019.
“This represents the highest level of infection we have seen since the pandemic of 2009,” Dr. Peter Koonin, who heads the NIH, told reporters at the institute’s annual meeting on Wednesday.
Koonin also said that the world’s coronaviral toll could rise by as much as 20%.
He did not provide a specific figure.
The pandemic was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization in October, and the U.S. declared an emergency for a third consecutive day on Friday, saying that more cases were being reported than expected.
The pandemics’ effects have been felt in many countries, including the United States, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Brazil, India and China.
But the numbers have been rising in many other countries, too, with the United Kingdom and Canada reporting the highest number of new coronavirence cases.
In a blog post, Koonins said that in 2019 the United Nations has estimated that more people died from the coronavides than from any other infectious disease.
The United Nations health agency said that during the year ending March 31, the number of cases in the United Arab Emirates was more than double that of the entire country, and that cases were reported from China, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and the United Republic of Tanzania.
The U.N. estimates also said the global coronavaccine death toll reached a new record high of 1.3 million, surpassing the previous record of 1 million set in 2016.
The United States and Canada reported the most new cases, with 1,919 and 1,716, respectively.
In Australia, there were 762 new cases.
The number of deaths in the U, U.K. and Canada was lower than in other countries with a higher number of reported cases.
Kooins said the numbers were also higher than those from the Uighur people in China, who have been under a state of lockdown since the outbreak.
The virus has been spreading rapidly in the Asia-Pacific region and has killed nearly 11,000 people since the beginning of the year, according to the WHO.
The U.L.E. said more than 1,000 of its people have been infected, but officials said the number was likely much higher.
The United States has reported 5,000 cases, including more than 6,000 deaths.

In 2015, the United Sates declared a state health emergency.
