Covid-19, no final pandemic, (WHO) Director-General warns

New Delhi: World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyes said that the coronavirus crisis is not the final pandemic, and we are guilty of attempting to improve human health without tackling animal welfare and climate change.

He called the outbreak of money like water at the outbreak dangerously short-sighted and condemned it. He further said that by doing this we are not doing anything to prepare for the coming days. He said this in a video message on the first International Day of Preparation of the epidemic to be held on Sunday.

The Director-General of WHO further said that it was time to learn lessons from the Covid-19 epidemic. He said that the world has been in a cycle of panic and neglect for a very long time.

He said that we spend money like water to deal with such outbreaks and when it is over, we all forget about it and do nothing to stop the calamity that lies ahead. It is very dangerous and short-sightedness which is difficult to understand clearly.

The Global Preparedness Monitoring Board’s first annual report on world preparedness regarding health emergencies was published in September 2019, a few months before the corona virus infection. It states that it is sad that Planet is not ready for a potentially devastating pandemic.

Tedros said that history is witnessing that this will not be the last pandemic; epidemics are a cycle of life and will continue to come. He said that the epidemic has exposed the health of humans, the intimate relationships between animals and the planet.

The Director-General of WHO further stated that any efforts are made to improve human health as long as they are focused on the important interfaces between humans and animals. Human survival is threatened by climate change. Climate change is making our earth less habitable, to which we are the only culprit.
