WHO: It would be a mistake to think that this is the end, the next epidemic will be more terrible, warns WHO

New Delhi: The world has come out of horror. The surroundings have become fairly normal. Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) sounded the alarm again. WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said it is better to prepare now for the next epidemic. He also expressed fear that the next epidemic may be more dangerous than the situation of the epidemic caused by the novel coronavirus. he said "There is no reason to think that the end of Covid means the end of the global health emergency. Another species is spreading the web. Infections and deaths are increasing. Rather, the newly discovered pathogen is more deadly."

A detailed report in this regard has already been presented at the 76th World Health Assembly. According to WHO, the whole world must unite and share the responsibility to deal with the possible epidemic. The head of the organization said, "We need to be prepared in every way before the next epidemic knocks on the door."

Corona has affected not only the health sector but also the economy of the whole world. If one more epidemic strikes and it is not stopped, the disaster is unstoppable, says the WHO. They have identified a total of nine dangerous diseases for now. They are considered the most dangerous at the moment. It is feared that the situation may worsen due to the lack of treatment for those nine diseases.

At the moment, the 10-day World Health Assembly is underway in Geneva, coincidentally with the 75th anniversary of the WHO. There is a wide discussion about what challenges everyone may face in the future in the field of health, the possible epidemic situation, the polio-free world, including the health crisis that has arisen as a result of the Russia-Ukraine war. WHO recommended in 2017 to include 3 billion citizens of the world directly in free health services. Keeping that goal in mind, they advocated bringing 100 crore people directly under free health services.
