The Virus will Not Be the Last Pandemic or Health Crisis: WHO

GENEVA – The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) warned Monday that COVID-19 is a harbinger of future global health emergencies and called for political and financial investments to prevent pandemics.
“This will not be the last pandemic, nor the last global health emergency,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at the launch of the 2020 Global Preparedness Oversight Board (GPMB) report.
“We don’t know what the next health emergency will be, but we know it will come. And we have to be prepared.”
Tedros’ speech came as the world passed 29 million cases with 924,953 confirmed deaths and nearly 19.7 million recoveries from COVID-19, according to Johns Hopkins University in the United States.
WHO also reported a record one-day increase in infections to around 308,000.
The GPMB is an independent oversight and accountability body to ensure preparedness for global health crises.
Tedros said humanity has a shared responsibility to leave the world better prepared for the next pandemic.
He said the COVID-19 pandemic had taken an enormous toll on lives and livelihoods, disrupting health systems, economies and societies.
“Even countries with advanced health systems and powerful economies have been overwhelmed,” Tedros said.
But many of the countries that have done well are those that have learned from previous epidemics like SARS, MERS, H1N1, Ebola and others.
“We can no longer wring our hands and say something needs to be done,” the WHO chief said.
Without learning the lessons now and without taking the necessary steps to make the world a safer place, Tedros asked, “When will we do it?”
He said: “We don’t know what the next health emergency will be, but we know it will happen. And we have to be prepared.”
