The director-general of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adanom Ghebreyesus, said that the year’s events and the coronavirus pandemic provided the world with many important lessons that need to be learned by 2021. The head of WHO said this in a video posted on the organization’s YouTube channel on the eve of the anniversary of the start of the coronavirus outbreak in China.
According to Gebreyesus, the year 2020 has shown that governments must increase investment in health care. For starters, all citizens must have access to coronavirus vaccines. In addition, policymakers must make sure that health systems are fully prepared for the next pandemic, which is inevitable, the WHO chief said.
