The World Health Organization (WHO) head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says he trusts the coronavirus pandemic that has been a weight on the world for some months now, will be over in two years time.
As per Tedros, in 1918, the Spanish Flu took two years to vanish, consequently he is idealistic, same is probably going to happen to coronavirus.
He made this expression in Geneva, Switzerland when he was speaking regarding the matter. He further said that, the current advances in technology could empower the world to stop the virus in a shorter time.
He believes the world has the technology, and the knowledge to stop it, if there is both national solidarity and global solidarity.
Coronavirus has so far executed 800,000 people. Almost 23 million contaminations have been recorded but the number of people who have really had the infection is believed to be a lot higher because of lacking testing and asymptomatic cases.
Several health experts including Scientists have expressed that, the infection would be with us perpetually in some form or another just like the flu. Subsequently, people will require re-inoculation at regular intervals.
As indicated by the WHO Head, if health laborers work without PPE, we’re taking a chance with their lives. And that also risks the lives of the people they serve, he added, in light of a question posed at him.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus was speaking based on corruption charges that are linked to provisions of PPE’s in some countries like South Africa and Kenya, where doctors from some of the city’s public medical clinics took to the streets over unpaid wages and an absence of protective gears.
