The head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanon Ghebreyesus said that with a COVID-19 vaccine on the horizon, nations must start investing and preparing for the next now deadlier plandemic.
Despite years of warnings, many countries were simply not ready for COVID-19,” WHO Director-General told a special session of the U.N. General Assembly on the Corona-virus. Many mistakenly assumed their strong health systems would protect them.
He said countries that have dealt with recent Corona-viruses, including Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) as well as other infectious diseases, have done better in containing COVID-19.
“Now all countries must develop that same muscle memory and invest in the measures that will prevent, control and mitigate the next crisis,” Tedros said. “It is also clear the global system for preparedness needs attention.
The WHO has come in for criticism from some countries for its handling of the pandemic after China reported the first cases early this year. U. S. President Donald Trump has been one of the most vocal critics, and announced the USA would withdraw from the global health organization.
The WHO chief stressed the need for rich and poor countries alike to have equal access to a COVID-19 vaccine, saying sharing science is not charity, but in the best interest of every nation. He also urged nations to radically rethink how they prioritize and view health if they want to avoid another crisis on this scale.
