Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) warned that it was dangerous to assume the Omicron variant would herald the end of coronavirus’s acutest phase, exhorting countries to stay focused to beat the pandemic.
As per details, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a WHO executive board meeting of the 2-year pandemic that has killed nearly 6 million people, added that “It’s dangerous to assume that Omicron will be the last variant and that we are in the end game,”.
Tedros said that “On the contrary, globally the conditions are ideal for more variants to emerge.” Though Omicron has sent total cases soaring to nearly 350 million, its less lethal impact and the increasing prevalence of vaccines has led to optimism in some parts that the worst of the pandemic may have passed.
The WHO’s head said that “The coronavirus pandemic is now entering its 3rd year and we are at a critical juncture,” added that “We must work together to bring the acute phase of this pandemic to an end. We cannot let it continue to drag on, lurching between panic and neglect.”
