Corona virus will not be the last pandemic, the world should be ready: president of WHO

Geneva, Ta. Sunday 27 december 2020

The President of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adnom Gheberesius, said on Sunday that the corona virus crisis is not the final pandemic and all efforts to improve human health, climate change and animal welfare are futile.

Ghebarius criticized countries around the world for throwing money at the epidemic but did not prepare to get rid of the next pandemic in a video message on Sunday on the occasion of the first International Pandemic Preparation Day. The Director of WHO said that it was time to learn from the Kovid-19 epidemic.

He said that the world has been working on the cycle of terror and neglect for a very long time. We throw money in fury and when it is over we forget about it and do nothing to stop the time to come. It is dangerously short-sighted and difficult to understand.

The first annual report of the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board on Health Preparedness for Health Preparation was published in September 2019. The corona virus outbreak spread worldwide a few months later, when reports said the world was not ready for a potentially devastating pandemic. “History suggests that this will not be the last pandemic and that the pandemic is a fact of life,” Tedros said.

The epidemic has revealed an intimate relationship between human, animal and earth health. Any attempt to optimize human health is not ignored unless it addresses the critical interface between humans and animals and makes our planet less habitable to the potential risk of climate change.

According to official sources compiled by AFP, the Corona virus which arrived in China in December last year has killed 17,64,621 people and killed 8,07,17,733 people. “Our world has reversed in the last 12 months,” Tedros said. The epidemic has had an impact on societies and economies.
