The World Health Organization on May 5th declared that COVID-19 is no longer a global health emergency.

Recall that the virus, which first broke out in China in 2019, killing more than 6.9 million people.

On January 30th 2020, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declared that the virus has become a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC) after nearly 10,000 cases were recorded.

However, speaking at a press conference on Friday, Tedros said: “COVID-19 has been so much more than a health cri§is, disrupting economies, travel, shattering businesses & plunging millions into poverty.

However, for more than a year the pandemic has been on a downward trend & this trend has allowed most countries to return to life as we knew it before COVID-19.

Therefore, with great hope, I declare COVID-19 over as a global health emergency.” However, he warned that the virus still posed a threat in developing countries that have not had access to vaccines.
