The Director-General of the World Health Organization, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, on Monday warned that at present the world is passing through a very dangerous and critical turning point in regards to the recent coronavirus epidemic.
Don’t assume COVID-19 pandemic nearby ‘end game’, Warns WHO. These arising situations can be the happy cause for advancements on other types of Covid-19. Likewise, with more omicron variants being enacted on the world, many more coconuts will be knocking.
Despite the amount of Omicron cases, Tedros Ghebreyesus from the World Health Organization released a statement in March saying that over 80 million people worldwide are affected by the disease, making it more than the number of cases in 2020.
The worry is that, while their position can’t control these changes, they don’t want their end-of-the-world prophecies to backfire and make them appear even more out of touch than they probably are.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the director-general of World Health Organization, also provided insight into what may be a final phase of the pandemic. Though he does not believe it will be worldwide, use of resources and technology by all countries is needed for this last phase to occur.
All countries should aim to vaccinate at least 70 percent of their population, focusing on high priority groups such as the elderly, adults, and vulnerable individuals.
Talking to The Ecologist, Ghebreyesus discussed how COVID-19 tests can expedite the disease response process. Countries should start conducting the tests so that more variants of the virus can be discovered in the future and work like finding solutions as soon as possible is feasible.
However, the turn of events offers a rare chance for a turning point in understanding and preparing, with the third year of covid-19 now descending over the world. It is up to everyone to work together collaboratively, leveraging things such as the power of technology and diversified resources to learn more about potential threats before they become severe pandemic.
