End of Covid-19 pandemic in sight, says WHO director-general

Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director-general of the World Health Organization, has signaled at the end in sight for Covid-19.

He said, “The world has never been in a better position to end the Covid-19 pandemic.”

In the past week the number of weekly reported deaths from Covid-19 was the lowest since March 2020.

However, there is still a risk of more variants, deaths, disruption and uncertainty.

The official case counts have become significantly underreported but trends have shown a steady drop in cases both globally and in the US.

The latest WHO report updates that weekly case counts are falling in all regions, with an overall fall of 28%.

While, there have been more than 6.4 million deaths due to Covid-19, forecasts by the US CDC says that new hospitalizations and deaths will hold steady for the next month.
