The head of WHO claims the pandemic’s end is near.

According to World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the number of Covid-19-related deaths worldwide has dropped over the past week to the lowest level since March 2020 coronavirus pandemic may be coming to an end soon.

At a briefing in Geneva on Wednesday, he stated that “last week, the number of weekly reported deaths from Covid-19 was the lowest since March 2020.”

“Never before have we had a better chance to stop the pandemic. Although the conclusion is not in sight, it is close.”

In his comparison of the fight against the coronavirus pandemic to a marathon, Ghebreyesus emphasized: “The finish line is visible. We’re in a position to succeed. But it’s not a good idea to quit running right now.”

He asked the world community to make more measures to stop the infection’s spread as a result.

“We run the risk of more mutations, deaths, disruption, and uncertainty if we don’t seize this chance right away. So let’s take advantage of this chance, “said he.

“The most at-risk demographics, including health workers and older people,” he urged all nations to properly immunize.

According to him, this is a top priority work to meet the WHO’s target of immunizing at least 70% of the population in each nation.

The coronavirus infected more than 3.1 million individuals worldwide in the past week, and around 11,000 of them lost their lives, according to the WHO’s weekly epidemiological update, which was released on Wednesday.

Compared to the previous seven days, the number of infections declined by 28%, while the number of fatalities decreased by 22%.
