London: The World Health Organisation on Friday [5th May] declared an end to COVID-19 as a global health emergency, marking a major step toward the end of the pandemic that has killed more than 6.9 million people, disrupted the global economy and ravaged communities.
The WHO’s Emergency Committee met on Thursday and recommended the UN-agency declare an end to the coronavirus crisis as a public health emergency of international concern€¯, which has been in place for over three years.
It is therefore with great hope that I declare COVID-19 over as a global health emergency,€¯ said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, adding that the end of the emergency did not mean COVID was over as a global health threat.
