WHO: there will be a new pandemic

WHO warns that “the end of COVID-19 as a global health emergency is not the end of COVID-19 as a global health threat“.

WHO: should we prepare for a new pandemic?

For the WHO, the risk remains “of another variant” or an emerging pathogen with even more deadly potential. According to Tedros Ghebreyesus, director general of the World Health Organization, “when the next pandemic knocks, and it will, we must be ready to respond decisively, collectively and fairly“. Speaking at the World Health Assembly, meeting in session in Geneva until May 30, Ghebreyesus insisted that “the end of COVID-19 as a global health emergency is not the end of COVID-19 as a global health threat.”
