World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus hopes the coronavirus pandemic will end within two years.
Yesterday, he said in Geneva, the Spanish flu of 1918 was over in two years. But he hopes that today’s advanced technology will reduce the risk of infecting the virus in less time.
Of course, due to improved communication systems, the chances of the virus spreading are much higher. He emphasized national unity and global unity in this regard.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus described it as a “crime” in response to a question about corruption in the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during the coronavirus pandemic.
The deadly flu of 1918 died at least 50 million people worldwide. The coronavirus has so far died about 0.8 million people worldwide and infected 20.31 million.
Michael Ryan, head of the emergency at Hu’s, said the 1918 pandemic came in three stages, and the second stage was the most devastating when its transmission reached its peak in the winter of 1918. But in the case of this Covod-19 virus, such a pattern is not seen.
He said there was no indication yet that the Covid-19 would be completely exhausted. He added many pandemic viruses to eventually arrive in a particular season. But the coronavirus is still not moving in that direction, he said.
Although lockdowns and normalcy have returned to normal in many parts of the world, coronavirus mortality rates have not dropped. On average, more than 5,000 people are dying every day.
