This was stated by the Director General of the World Health Organization Tedros Adanom Ghebreyesus at the ceremony of awarding him the Thomas Francis Jr. Medal for his contribution to healthcare.

He is confident that the organization will announce the end of the COVID-19 pandemic by the end of this year. The world is currently in a better position "than ever during the pandemic." For the first time, the number of deaths detected in a week is lower than when the organization first used the word "pandemic" in relation to the spread of SARS-CoV-2.

March 11 marked three years since the WHO declared the covid outbreak a pandemic. The head of WHO pointed out that it was much more important for the organization to declare the spread of COVID-19 a public health emergency of international importance. It happened on January 30, 2020.
