Covid-19 emergency could end this year

The director general of the WHO assured that if work is done properly, this 2023 would end the Covid-19 pandemic

The director general of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, offered good feelings regarding the evolution of the Covid-19 pandemic and assured that, if it is worked properly, this will be the year in which the public emergency is officially over.

“We are now entering the fourth year of the pandemic with a world that is in a much better situation than it was a few years ago, thanks to clinical care and the management of vaccines and treatments”, the expert assessed.

On the other hand, he assured that “for most of 2022, Covid-19 was in decline, vaccination increased and sustained progress was made in access to vaccines by low-and middle-income countries that had been forgotten in 2021 due to to vaccine nationalism.”

Tedros recalled that last week the WHO approved for the first time two generic drugs against the virus (nirmatrelvir and ritonavir), produced by an Indian pharmaceutical company, which will increase access to less developed countries to treatments.
