2022 will mark the end of the pandemic

World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Ghebreyesus reminded people not too long ago that it was two years ago, as people gathered for New Year’s Eve celebrations, that a new global threat emerged.

Since then, 1.8 million deaths were recorded in 2020 and 3.5 million in 2021, but the actual number is much higher. There are also millions of people dealing with long-term consequences from the virus.

Also, it’s important to mention the fact that Tedros acknowledged that beating the new health threat would require science, solutions, and solidarity.

“The UN health agency chief expressed optimism during a press briefing on Wednesday that 2022 maybe the year the world ends the acute stage of the COVID-19 pandemic. ”

The reports are according to the data supplied each weekday by the central Health Ministry and that is based on information sent from the country’s regions.

El Pais has questioned the regions as well as a dozen hospitals and specialists.

“While the majority responded by saying that they did not have precise information, the data collected show that between 25 and 40% of hospitalized patients are in this situation.”

Julio Mayol, medical director at the Hospital Clínico in Madrid, made sure to explain the fact that of the nearly 100 patients who tested positive when admitted, “two-thirds are suffering from Covid and a third are being treated for other reasons, although the virus may be related.”
