Bill O'Reilly announced on his personal website that "The No Spin News" podcast he's been hosting for years will return Monday at 7 p.m. ET.

This is the first time O'Reilly will speak to audiences after being publicly ousted amid sexual harassment claims at Fox News. The podcast episodes typically last less than 5 minutes and feature O'Reilly's analysis of news of the day.

Why it matters: Returning so quickly to the limelight means that O'Reilly isn't ready to throw in the towel. He denies doing anything wrong, and his podcast and website provide an avenue to reach his loyal fans.

WHO won't call coronavirus a pandemic as cases spread

Data: The Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins, the CDC, and China's Health Ministry. Note: China numbers are for the mainland only and U.S. numbers include repatriated citizens.

The World Health Organization will not yet call the coronavirus a pandemic, claiming that needs across affected countries are too varied and the classification would increase fear, per a briefing Monday.

The big picture: As South Korea and Italy stepped up emergency measures in efforts to thwart the spread of the virus, WHO expressed concern about infections with no clear link to China. COVID-19 has killed at least 2,620 people and infected almost 80,000 others, with all but 27 deaths occurring in mainland China.
