Still Waters Posted February 2 #1 Share Posted February 2 (IP: Staff) · As much as we all desperately want it to be over, experts have concluded the COVID-19 pandemic remains a global health emergency. However, they're hoping we're reaching a transition point. "In the past eight weeks, more than 170,000 people have lost their lives to COVID-19," World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a press conference. "And that's just the reported deaths. We know the actual number is much higher." In their latest meeting, WHO's International Health Regulations Emergency Committee concluded that "while eliminating this virus from human and animal reservoirs is highly unlikely, mitigation of its devastating impact on morbidity and mortality is achievable and should continue to be a prioritized goal." https://www.sciencealert.com/the-pandemic-never-ended-who-warns 1 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
