The Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has warned that the coronavirus crisis “has no end in sight” and that the effects of the pandemic that has been afflicting the world’s population since then will take months “to take” to disappear.
“The pandemic is a health crisis that occurs once in a century and the impact of which will be felt in the coming decades,” said the director-general at the meeting on Friday last Friday of the Committee on International Health Regulations, the conclusions of which the UN Health Office announced this Saturday released.
After a full discussion and review of the evidence, the committee “unanimously” agreed that the outbreak is still an “emergency of public concern for public health” (PHEIC).
“Many countries that believed the worst was over are now experiencing new outbreaks. Some countries that were less affected in the first few weeks are now seeing an increasing number of cases and deaths,” the doctor recalled.
