“We are still in the tunnel” of the pandemic, clarifies the head of the WHO

The director general of the World Health Organization (WHO) said Thursday that the end of the covid-19 pandemic it was in sight, but still far away, qualifying the statements he made last week.

“We have spent two and a half years in a long, dark tunnel, and we are just beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel,” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news conference in New York, where he is attending the General Assembly meeting of United Nations.

But we are still far away and the tunnel is still dark, with numerous obstacles that could make us fall if we are not vigilant,” he added.

These statements are less optimistic than those that the official himself said last week, when he commented that the world “has never been in a better position to end the pandemic.”

According to Dr. Tedros, the number of deaths registered each week in the world continues to decline and represents no more than 10% of what was the peak moment in January 2021.

In most countries, restrictions are lifted and two-thirds of the world’s population are vaccinated.

“But 10,000 dead each week, that’s 10,000 too many,” he warned.

According to WHO online statistics, the covid-19 pandemic has caused more than 6.5 million deaths worldwide.
