‘Perfect storm’: WHO warns second year of fighting Covid-19 could be ‘even tougher’ than the first
Ongoing transmission dynamics show the world needs to brace for an even tougher year of fighting Covid-19, the World Health Organization (WHO) has warned, while the disease has turned into the perfect storm in Europe and the US.
“We are going into a second year of this, it could even be tougher given the transmission dynamics and some of the issues that we are seeing,” WHO’s Health Emergencies chief, Mike Ryan, said during a Q&A session broadcast online on Wednesday.
Following a drop in new cases reported over the holiday season, the numbers are “picking up” again – and the overall picture does not look particularly promising, the senior official admitted.
Ryan’s words were echoed by Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO's technical lead for its Health Emergencies Programme. “After the holidays, in some countries the situation will get a lot worse before it gets better,” she warned.
