The World Health Organization (WHO) has said future waves of the coronavirus are expected and governments around the world should remain vigilant and ready to respond to any threat that may arise.



“We have never been in a better position to end the pandemic,” said the WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a press conference in Geneva on Wednesday.

According to the WHO, in the week of September 5-11, the number of new weekly cases worldwide fell 28 percent from the previous week to more than 3.1 million. The number of new weekly deaths fell by 22 percent to just below 11,000.

Tedros compared the pandemic response to a marathon race.

“Now is the time to run faster and make sure we cross the line and reap the rewards of all our hard work.”

Nevertheless, WHO experts continue to urge caution, the Xinhua news agency reported.

The virus “is currently circulating at a very intense level around the world. And in fact, the number of cases reported to the WHO that we know of is an underestimate,” Maria Van Kerkhovesaid technical leader of the WHO’s health emergency program.

“We feel that there are far more cases circulating than are reported to us,” she added.

“We expect that there will be future waves of infection, possibly at different times around the world, caused by different sub-variants of Omicron or even different variants of care,” she noted.

Those future waves of infection “don’t have to translate into future waves of death, because we have tools that can prevent infections,” she said.

Even as the pandemic eases, people should maintain a high level of vigilance, Mike said RyanExecutive Director of the WHO’s Health Emergency Programme.

The world is fighting “a highly volatile evolving virus that has shown us time and again in two and a half years how it can adapt and how it can change,” Ryan added.
