Coronavirus-19 has been in existence since 2002 when Coronavirus was first discovered in Guangdong province, South of China, as a Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) that was symptomized by cough, dyspnea and pneumonia(Zhong, NS, Zheng, BJ, PoonXie, ZH,, 2003) being highly transmissible among human beings from the bats. By then, the disease had rapidly spread to Hongkong and even across other provinces in China to the coverage of 28 other countries killing 8060 people an indication that the disease was dangerous to human life, responsibility of the world Health Organization being as the watchdog of the international countries. It seems to be defeating the logic that, the WHO has not yet come up with the vaccine for the immunization of the corona virus. Report from the centre of Global Health Security Workshop (Charless Cliff, 2014) recommended that the WHOs core functions is to explicitly provide for its work in promoting and maintaining global health security, which seems not to be taking place as resolved to and documented. The objectives of the study is to establish the process that WHO employs in directing and coordinating health services, determine the strategies that the world Health Organization has put in place to curb the emerging pandemic in the world, establish the fore-protective mechanisms that WHO has put in place in case of the eruption of pandemics, and determine the state of evidence for leadership and management of the World Health Organization body internationally. The researchers applied three theories that included: Theory of Planned Behaviour (Ajazen, Icek (1987), Critical theory ( Karl Marx, 1930) and Ecological theory (Bronfenbrenner, U., 1974). The mixed method research was executed by the researchers in which quantitative and qualitative design was concurrently applied. The researcher employed Accidental sampling and purposive sampling techniques. Collection of data was conducted through questionnaires, interview schedule and observation method. Descriptive survey data analysis was used to facilitate research objectives and questions with the employment of SPSS programme. The findings indicated that WHO has done little or nothing on discovery of vaccine for transferable or communicable pandemics. The conclusion was that the much money that is contributed by the international countries should be put into research work on the causes and the cure of many communicable diseases. Recommendation was that WHOs many responsibilities should be distributed to the other world organizations for efficiency.
