WHO Chief Hopes End to Coronavirus Pandemic in Less Than Two Years

WHO chief urged “national unity” and “global solidarity” so as to tame the coronavirus pandemic.

The World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Friday hoped that the coronavirus pandemic would come to an end in less than two years, saying that the planet should be able to rein in the disease faster than the two years it took to tame the 1918 flu pandemic.

"We have a disadvantage of globalisation, closeness, connectedness, but an advantage of better technology, so we hope to finish this pandemic before less than two years," he told reporters in Geneva.

By "utilising the available tools to the maximum and hoping that we can have additional tools like vaccines, I think we can finish it in a shorter time than the 1918 flu," he added.
