“Coronavirus is not the last pandemic,” warns WHO Chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

In a video message commemorating the first international day of epidemic preparation, Gebreyes said it was time to learn lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic. “For too long, the world has been run through a cycle of panic and laziness,” he said.

World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Gebreyes says the coronavirus pandemic is not the last, and attempts to improve human health are destined without addressing the two issues of climate change and animal welfare. I warned you. He also criticized the “dangerous myopic” cycle of throwing money and forgetting it all when it occurred.

“According to history, this is not the last pandemic, the epidemic is a reality … the pandemic has highlighted a close relationship between human, animal and planetary health … improving human health. Every effort to do so is destined, unless we address the important interface between humans and animals, and the threat of the presence of climate change that makes our planet inhabitable, “said Gebreez.

In a video message commemorating the first international day of epidemic preparation, Gebreyes said it was time to learn lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic. “For a long time the world has been run in a cycle of panic and laziness … we throw money when it happens, and when it’s over we forget it and to prevent the next: It doesn’t do anything. It’s dangerous short-sighted, and frankly hard to understand. ”

The first annual report of the World Preparatory Oversight Commission on Global Preparation for Health Emergency in September 2019, published months before the pandemic, states that the planet is a potentially devastating pandemic. He said he was terribly unprepared.

Ghebreyesus said the world has been upside down in the last 12 months. He pointed out that the effects of the pandemic go far beyond the disease itself, with “widespread consequences for society and the economy.” He added that the coronavirus pandemic should not have been surprising given all the repeated warnings. “We all have to learn the lessons that the pandemic teaches us,” he said.

WHO chiefs said countries must invest in their readiness to prevent, detect and mitigate emergencies of all kinds, calling for stronger primary health care. He said investing in public health countries can ensure that children inherit a safer, more resilient and sustainable world.
