” 2022 must be the year we end the coronavirus pandemic ”. This was stated by the director general of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus during a press conference in Geneva. Tedros therefore appealed to the internal world to show unity and make difficult but useful decisions to stop the pandemic within the next year.
As the end of the year holidays approached, the WHO director said he understood that ” we all want to spend time with friends and family. We all want to go back to normal. ” But, at the same time, he stressed that to get back to normal, you need to protect yourself now that cases are increasing, driven above all by the particularly contagious Omicron variant. With cases rapidly increasing, Tedros stressed that it is better to cancel events “now and celebrate later than celebrate now and suffer later”.
