WHO Chief Warns of 'More Deadly Virus' Yet to Come

World Health Organisation (WHO) Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus issued a strong warning while addressing the UN's health agency's annual assembly of health ministers from its 194 member states.

    "The world remains in a very dangerous situation," said Ghebreyesus, cautioning countries against assuming they were "out of the woods," no matter how successful their vaccination rate might be.

He applauded the global efforts of medical workers battling on the frontlines of the health crisis, but emphasised that as long as the SARS-CoV-2 virus and its variants were spreading, there is no room for complacency.

    "Make no mistake, this will not be the last time the world faces the threat of pandemic. It's an evolutionary certainty that there will be another virus with the potential to be more transmittable and more deadly than this one," he said.

The COVID-19 pandemic, according to the WHO chief, is plagued by a "scandalous inequity" in vaccine distribution, as he said more than 75 percent of all COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in just 10 countries.

  1. A virus even more transmissible and fatal than Covid-19 will lead the world into the next pandemic, the director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO) has said, noting the “evolutionary certainty” of such an occurrence.

    “Make no mistake, this will not be the last time the world faces the threat of pandemic,” Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told the UN agency’s annual assembly of health ministers from its 194 member states on Monday. “It’s an evolutionary certainty that there will be another virus with the potential to be more transmittable and more deadly than this one.”

    On a more positive note, Ghebreyesus said the global number of Covid-19 cases and deaths reported has been decreasing for three consecutive weeks.

    But the WHO chief stressed that the world remains “in a fragile situation” and cautioned against any nation assuming it is “out of the woods, no matter its [Covid] vaccination rate.”....rt
