WHO: Worst phase of outbreak expected to end this year

On the 24th local time, the WHO held its 150th Executive Board meeting. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in the foreseeable future. Humans will coexist with the new coronavirus, and more variants are likely to emerge under the current situation. If countries can fully use all strategies and tools. The worst phase of the epidemic could be ended this year. COVID-19 will no longer be a global public health emergency.

But Tedros added that this would require all countries to vaccinate 70% of the population. Reduce mortality and increase testing and sequencing rates globally. There is still a long way to go in the future.
