COVID-19 No Longer A Global Public Health Emergency: WHO

New Delhi: The World Health Organization (WHO) on Friday announced that COVID-19 is now an established and ongoing health issue which no longer constitutes a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC).

The coronavirus pandemic will no longer be categorised as a public health emergency, according to the WHO and Covid 19. The designation had been modified more than three years prior to this.

According to sources, the WHO Director-General decided that COVID-19 is no longer a public health emergency of international concern (PHEIC) after taking into account the Committee’s recommendations about the ongoing epidemic.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declared, “I declare COVID-19 over as a global health emergency.”

It should be mentioned that on January 30, 2020, the WHO labelled the epidemic a public health emergency of global significance. It maintained its classification with the highest level of worry from the world health organisation for more than three years.

According to the WHO, the Covid 19 virus has claimed the lives of more than 6.9 million people worldwide, including more than 1 million in the United States alone.
