WHO Director-General urges to prepare for new pandemics
The current coronavirus pandemic will not be the last one, epidemics are our reality, World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned today.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, "the world has turned upside down", and we are already talking about global "far-reaching consequences for societies and economies”, the head of the organization said.
Gebreyesus explained that there is nothing surprising: for many years, scientists warned that the world is not ready for pandemics. He called to make conclusions and direct investments to prevent emergencies and develop primary health care.
