So, when do governments give up on their denial and start calling this the Great Pandemic of 2020? It has already surpassed all of the traditional criteria for a pandemic.

And then what?  

Would making it official give them credibility again?   

I'm just posting what little information they give us and each person who reads it should make their own minds up on how much to believe since there are now 61 different countries reporting this and every one of them has reasons for not giving us the whole story.  

Truth is, we may never get the whole story.    Just try to be prepared to weather this if it hits each of us as it's already doing in many different ways.  [just my advice]

I understand. Likely nothing will ever give WHO or the governments that are withholding the real numbers credibility again. However, as time goes on, if they continue to minimize this outbreak, they stand to lose even more than credibility. South Korea seems to be doing the best job of extensive testing and reporting whatever they find, which gives them great credibility. Italy seems to be trying, but they don't seem to be capable of the task. Most of the other governments seem to just wish that this virus would just magically disappear.
