On Saturday, the World Health Organisation had hoped the coronavirus crisis can be over in less than two years faster than it took for the 1918 Spanish flu.

“In our situation now with more technology, and of course with more connectedness, the virus has a better chance of spreading, it can move fast because we are more connected now,” WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a briefing in Geneva.

“But at the same time, we have also the technology to stop it and the knowledge to stop it. So we have a disadvantage of globalization, closeness, connectedness but an advantage of better technology”, he added.

“So we hope to finish this pandemic in less than two years,” he said, urging national unity and global solidarity. “That is really key with utilizing the available tools to the maximum and hoping that we can have additional tools like a vaccine.”
