The head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, gave the good news during a press conference on the eve of the turn of the year.

According to him, the year 2022 could bring an end to the coronavirus pandemic that has taken the lives of millions of people around the world.

He called for the distribution of as many vaccines as possible in poor countries, as inequality could extend the time of the pandemic.

“Two years later, the tools available to combat Covid-19 remain unevenly distributed around the world. In Africa, three in four healthcare workers remain unvaccinated, while people in Europe and the United States are receiving third booster doses. This gap has made the chances for the emergence of new variants more likely, locking us in a cycle of constant losses, difficulties and limitations. “If we end inequality, we end the pandemic and we end the global nightmare we have all lived through.”
