The world has never been in a better position to end the COVID-19 pandemic, World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said today. At the same time, he called on countries not to reduce their efforts to fight against the new coronavirus, which has so far caused the death of more than six million people, reported Reuters.

“We have not yet reached that point. However, the end (of the pandemic) is approaching,” the head of the WHO told reporters at a virtual press conference, BTA reported.

His comment was the most optimistic from the UN health agency since it declared the situation with the new coronavirus as a pandemic in March 2020, Reuters noted.

The virus, which emerged in China at the end of 2019, has killed nearly 6.5 million people out of a total of 606 million infected, causing powerful tremors in the global economy and overwhelming health care systems.

The roll-out of vaccination campaigns and therapies have helped stem the burden of the disease. Deaths from COVID-19 last week were at their lowest level since March 2020, according to WHO data.

However, countries need to take a hard look at their policies and strengthen them to counter COVID-19 and future viruses, Ghebreyesus said. He also urged countries to vaccinate 100 percent of people in high-risk populations and continue testing.
