Geneva: The World Health Organization has said that the end of the Covid epidemic which made the lives of people in trouble for three years is not far away. WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the world is moving closer to the finish line of the marathon race eventhough the goal has not yet been achieved.
WHO reported that new cases fell to 28 percent for the week ending September 11. The number of new patients is 12 percent less than the previous week. But Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the figures should not be misunderstood and that many countries had reduced the number of tests. A WHO study recently revealed that at least 17 million people died by Covid-19 in 2020 and 2021.
In March 2020, WHO declared Covid as a global pandemic. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus also proposed six guidelines to control the spread of the disease. The most important thing is to ensure 100 percent vaccination.
