The Coronavirus pandemic could last for another two years, according to a World Health Organisation chief.
Director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus described COVID-19 as a ‘once-in-a-century health crisis’.
He said globalisation allowed the virus to spread quicker than the Spanish Flu did in 1918, but added that the world had technology to stop it which wasn’t around a hundred years ago.
‘We hope to finish this pandemic (in) less than two years, especially if we can pool our efforts,’ he said Friday.
Currently, there are more than 22 million confirmed global cases and more than 795,000 deaths from the coronavirus, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University.
