WHO Chief ‘Hopes’ “Once-In-A-Century Health Crisis” Will End In Two Years | Zero Hedge


The current “slow burn” nature of COVID-19’s spread in the United States and beyond has resulted in numerous predictions of late over just how long until a return to “normal” – with some even saying there will never actually be a pre-virus normal again, suggesting a ‘socially distanced world’ will continue well beyond 2020.


At a moment President Trump is teasing a new “major therapeutic breakthrough” on COVID-19, to be announced Sunday evening, the World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has issued less than optimistic remarks, to put it mildly.


Calling the coronavirus as a “once-in-a-century health crisis” akin to the last one, the 1918 flu pandemic, Tedros expressed hope that the pandemic will be over in less than two years.
