WHO chief warns COVID-19 pandemic “most certainly not over”

Global News published this video item, entitled “WHO chief warns COVID-19 pandemic “most certainly not over”” – below is their description.

World Health Organization director-general Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said Sunday during the opening session of the U.N. agency’s annual assembly that the COVID-19 pandemic is “most certainly not over.”

“It’s not over anywhere until it’s over everywhere. Reported cases are increasing in almost 70 countries in all regions — and this in a world in which testing rates have plummeted,” he said.

He also thanked the executive board of the Health Assembly to nominate him for a second term as WHO’s director-general. He is expected to be re-elected via a secret ballot on Tuesday.

More than 100 world health ministers had gathered in Geneva this week of the first in-person World Health Assembly in three years.
