World Health Organisation chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has stated that he hopes that the Covid-19 pandemic will be over in less than two years.
He made reference to the timeline of the Spanish flu which took two years to end.
He said by “utilising the available tools to the maximum and hoping that we can have additional tools like vaccines, I think we can finish it in a shorter time than the 1918 flu”.
However, since the Spanish flu occurred in 1918, Tedros added that our current situation in terms of more connectiveness and technology has given the virus a better chance of moving fast.
That being said, Tedros stated that we have the technology and knowledge to stop the virus.
