He said the world has “tools to end the pandemic”, although the number of new cases in the world is reaching new records.

In a post on LinkedIn, the WHO director general warned that the pandemic would last longer, the longer the inequality would continue.

– Two years after the beginning of the pandemic, the tools available for the fight against kovid-19 are still unevenly distributed in part of the world. In Africa, three out of four health workers are not vaccinated, while people in Europe and the United States receive third doses. That gap has increased the chances for the emergence of new variants, locking us into a cycle of continuous loss, difficulties and limitations – Tedros wrote.

He added, “If we end inequality, we will end the pandemic and global nightmare we have all experienced.

“And that’s possible,” he said.

As for his New Year’s resolutions, he said he would work with governments to prioritize the delivery of vaccines to global initiatives, such as COVAX and AVAT, with the goal of vaccinating 70 percent of people in all countries by mid-2022.
