World might be tired, but COVID-19 is not tired of us: WHO

The World Health Organization chief has said that “we might be tired of the pandemic, but it is “not tired of us.”

Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus also hailed the election of Joe Biden as the next President of the United States.

“We might be tired of COVID-19. But it is not tired of us. Covid-19 preys on those in weaker health, but it preys on other weaknesses too: inequality, division, denial, wishful thinking and willful ignorance,” Tedros said speaking to WHO’s main annual assembly.

“We cannot negotiate with it, nor close our eyes and hope it goes away. It pays no heed to political rhetoric or conspiracy theories,” he said. “Our only hope is science, solutions and solidarity.”

The U.S. reported more than 10million Covid-19 cases.
