Advises world governments to cancel Christmas events as it asks China to share data on virus origins

The Director-General of the World Health Organisation Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has in Geneva called for governments to cancel “Christmas events.” This move he says will mitigate the fast spreading Omicron variant.

Speaking at a new conference Tedros said that holiday festivities would in many places lead to “increased cases, overwhelmed health systems and more deaths” and urged people to postpone gatherings.

“An event cancelled is better than a life cancelled.” He said. To a Covid weary world he offered hope in the fourth and fifth generation vaccines, microbial treatments and other mitigation efforts to get the world out of the pandemic in 2022. The pandemic has claimed the lives of 5.6 million globally so far.

Earlier the WHO director-general called on China to be more forthcoming with the Covid origin data. “We need to continue until we know the origins, we need to push harder because we should learn from what happened this time in order to (do) better in the future.” 

He also said that there had been “many failures” during the COVID-19 pandemic due to a lack of rules or obligations under the WHO’s current 2005 International Health Regulations.

President Joe Biden of the United States will later Tuesday unveil his Omicron strategy.
