The head of the World Health Organization (WHO) last week urged governments across the world to deploy measures like masking and improved ventilation amid growing cases of Covid.
While many governments of wealthier countries have all but abandoned coronavirus restrictions following successful vaccine rollouts, the organization’s director-general emphasized that the pandemic is “nowhere near over”.
Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said sub-variants of Omicron continue to drive new waves of cases, hospitalizations and deaths around the world.
Amid increasing COVID transmission and rising hospitalizations, Dr Tedros urged governments to “deploy tried and tested measures like masking, improved ventilation and test and treat protocols.”
