The head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adanom Ghebreyesus, issued a New Year’s greeting, expressing confidence that the international community will be able to beat the global pandemic in the coming year, provided the close cooperation of all states and aid to developing countries.


We must stop the pandemic. This requires all countries to work together and reach the level of 70% of the vaccinated population. Each of us has a role to play. <...> I wish people in all parts of the world a happy, safe and healthy 2022, — said researcher.

He also warned the world community against vaccine withholding and vaccine nationalism that undermine human rights equality and are the primary cause of the Ommicron strain.

Once we beat inequality, the pandemic will end.

The WHO director-general has previously warned that sooner or later a new virus will emerge on the planet whose spread cannot be contained, and called for lessons to be learned from the COVID-19 pandemic. He also went on to emphasize the importance of political cooperation and suggested that the G20 negotiate an international agreement that would legally oblige to prepare for and respond to pandemics.
