The World Health Organization has announced the end of the emergency situation related to COVID-19. This means that one of the deadliest and most economically devastating pandemics in modern history is receding.
For more than a year, the pandemic has been declining with an increase in population immunity from vaccination and infections, a decrease in mortality and a reduction in the burden on health systems. This trend has allowed most countries to return to life as we knew it before the coronavirus. Therefore, it is with great hope that I announce that COVID-19 no longer has the status of a health emergency",
According to the Center for Systems Sciences and Engineering (CSSE) of Johns Hopkins University (JHU), about 680 million cases of the disease have been recorded worldwide during the pandemic. Deaths from the disease — almost 7 million.
