Geneva: The Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, has called on the world to come together to end the COVID-19 pandemic over the next year. Addressing reporters here Monday, Tredos said the quickest way to get back to normal is to make tough decisions this holiday season amid the rapid spread of the Omicron COVID-19 variant.

He said canceling an event is better than canceling life. Better to cancel now and celebrate later than to celebrate now and cry later. The WHO chief was also quoted by the Xinhua news agency as saying: “We all want to get back to normal.” We need to save ourselves now.

He also called on governments to take the utmost precautions and avoid events involving large concentrations in the coming weeks. Since the Omicron variant was first discovered in South Africa, it has now been reported in 89 countries, and according to the WHO, the number of cases in areas with community transmission is doubling in 1.5 to three days.

The new variant of Omicron is not more severe than the delta variant, but it is likely to be more infectious and resistant to vaccines. On inequality in access to vaccines, said the WHO chief, if we want to end the pandemic next year, we must end inequality.
