We know for sure that in the future there will be new viruses and a disease called X.
Axar.az reports that, the statement came from the head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Gebreyesus, speaking at a press conference in Geneva. He stressed that the international community has the necessary tools to prevent and combat new diseases.
Dr. Tedros cited the experience of the Thai government and community, based on the experience of fighting SARS and H5N1 viruses, as an example of how they can mobilize in a timely and rapid manner to prevent the spread of COVID-19. "As in Thailand, the development of 'muscle memory' is very important in the fight against the pandemic, and now the whole world must be prepared for war in this regard," he said.
According to the head of the WHO, although the coronovirus is no longer the first epidemic of the most dangerous diseases of this century, it has suddenly caught the international community. In this regard, Tedros cited diseases such as Zika and Ebola.
"It simply came to our notice then. At the height of the epidemic, a lot of money is being spent to fight it, but there are no funds left in the reserve fund to prepare for the next epidemic,” said Tedros.
