“The end of COVID-19 Pandemic is in sight.” – WHO
According to the World Health Organization, the number of newly reported Covid-19 cases has dropped dramatically, meaning the end of the pandemic is in sight. This was revealed on Wednesday, 14th of September, 2022 by the WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. He urged the world to seize the opportunity to end the pandemic.
According to the Chief, newly reported cases of the disease, which has killed millions since being identified in late 2019, last week fell to the lowest level since March 2020.
“We have never been in a better position to end the pandemic,” he told reporters. “We are not there yet, but the end is in sight.”
But the world needed to step up to “seize this opportunity”, he added.
“If we don’t take this opportunity now, we run the risk of more variants, more deaths, more disruption, and more uncertainty.”
According to WHO’s latest epidemiological report on Covid-19, the number of reported cases fell 28 percent to 3.1 million during the week ending September 11, following a 12-percent-drop a week earlier.
