COVID ‘End Is In Sight’, Says WHO

Geneva: The World Health Organization (WHO) on Wednesday said the “end is in sight” for COVID-19, saying that the number of newly reported cases has dropped dramatically, AFP reported. It urged the world to seize the opportunity to end the pandemic.

Newly reported cases last week fell to the lowest level since March 2020, the report quoted WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus as saying.

“We have never been in a better position to end the pandemic,” he told reporters. “We are not there yet, but the end is in sight.”

“If we don’t take this opportunity now, we run the risk of more variants, more deaths, more disruption, and more uncertainty.”

But the agency warned that the falling number of reported cases is deceptive as countries cut back on testing.
