While the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic, it is doing far too little to prepare for the future, and possibly even more damaging pandemics. A report by the Global Preparedness Monitoring Board (GPMB), which is an independent body created by the World Health Organization and the World Bank, the GPMB has indicated that the coronavirus pandemic had revealed how little the world had focused on preparing for such disasters, despite ample warnings that large disease outbreaks were inevitable.
“Failure to learn the lessons of Covid-19 or to act on them with the necessary resources and commitment will mean that the next pandemic, which is sure to come, will be even more damaging,” it warned.
The World Health Organization (WHO) warned Monday, August 03, 2020, that there might never be a “silver bullet” for the new coronavirus, despite the rush to discover effective vaccines. “For now, stopping outbreaks comes down to the basics of public health and disease control.”
