With 50,000 deaths a week, COVID-19 pandemic is far from over: WHO chief

GENEVA: The coronavirus pandemic will come to an end when all the countries start using the available health tools effectively, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.

He also said that ‘When will the COVID-19 pandemic end?’ is one of the questions he is asked most often.

“The pandemic will end when the world chooses to end it. It is in our hands. We have all the tools we need: effective public health tools and effective medical tools. But the world has not used those tools well. With almost 50,000 deaths a week, the pandemic is far from over,” Dr Tedros said on Sunday, in his address to the World Health Summit in Berlin.
