It’s been almost three years since COVID-19 first appeared.

The disease has killed 6.5 million people and infected more than 600 million others globally.

But the World Health Organization says things are starting to improve.

Last week’s death toll was the lowest since March 2020 when the pandemic was announced.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the end of the pandemic was ‘in sight’ but warned against complacency.

And what lessons can be learned in the event that we face another outbreak?

Presenters: Imran Khan

Guest:

Dr. Margaret Harris – Spokesperson of the World Health Organization

Jeffrey Lazarus – Health Systems Research Group, Barcelona Institute for Global Health

Serah Makka – One Campaign Africa Interim Director
