WHO: Covid-19 Won’t Pose Greater Threat Than Flu Later This Year
Covid-19 won’t pose any greater threat than flu later this year, according to the World Health Organisation.
The WHO says it’s confident the public health emergency of international concern, will also end this year.
Covid was given that status in January 2020, which is the highest level of alarm the organisation can sound.
Executive director with the WHO’s emergencies programme, Dr Mike Ryan, says the threat from the virus is declining.
