Be Prepared For A Pandemic Worse Than COVID-19, WHO Warns

The World Health Organization (WHO) is calling on the world to be ready for the emergence of a pathogen deadlier than the novel COVID-19.

WHO Director-General, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus made the call on Monday during the 76th World Health Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland.

Dr Ghebreyesus says the threat of another new variant that causes new surges of disease and death with even deadlier potential remains.

The WHO DG says pandemics are not the only threat the world faces. 

He notes that in a world of overlapping and converging crises, an effective architecture for health emergency preparedness and response must address emergencies of all kinds.

The WHO’s warning comes weeks after it declared an end to COVID-19 as a public health emergency of international concern.
