The World Health Organization or WHO has said that COVID-19 is no longer a global health emergency.
The Virus which shut down countries, led to 6,921,614 deaths with 765,222,932 confirmed cases as of April 30th.
WHO said the virus’ death rate had dropped from more than 100,000 people per week in January 2021 to just over 3,500 on 24 April.
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director-General of WHO said, “It’s with great hope that I declare COVID-19 over as a global health emergency.”
Tedros advised caution going further, adding that the removal of covid 19 as a global emergency “does not mean COVID-19 is over as a global health threat.”
