Covid pandemic is not going to end soon, take precautions: WHO
World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has issued a warning to world leaders, saying that the Covid-19 pandemic is ‘nowhere to end’.
The BBC reported that the WHO chief cautioned against the notion that the new dominant Omicron variant is much milder and has eliminated the threat posed by the virus. The WHO has given this warning when record new cases are being reported in some European countries.
He said that it is misleading that it is a mild disease. “Make no mistake, Omicron is leading to hospitalizations and deaths,” he said.
Warned global leaders that ‘new variants are likely to emerge with Omicron’s incredible growth globally. This is why tracking and evaluation are important.
WHO emergencies director Mike Ryan also warned that Omicron’s increased transmission potential is likely to lead to increased hospitalizations and deaths. Especially in countries where fewer people are vaccinated.
