Tedros Adanom Ghebreyesus said, “We have the obstacles of globalization, intimacy and connections, but in return for this is the technology advantage, so we hope to end this pandemic less than two years ago.”
AFP quoted Ghebreyesus as saying that by “making use of the available tools to the maximum and hoping to obtain additional tools such as vaccines, I believe that we can end the pandemic in less time than it took the 1918 flu” in Spain.
On the impact of the mutation on the virus, Maria Van Kerkhove, an epidemiologist at the World Health Organization, said that more research is needed on the impact of the mutation on the Corona virus.
“We have formed a special team to monitor mutations … and we are studying how we can better understand the process of transformation and its impact,” she said during a briefing in Geneva.
