Effects of Covid-19 Felt For Decades to Come, WHO Chief Says

"The Covid-19 pandemic is a once-in-a-century health crisis ... Many countries that believed they were past the worst are now grappling with new outbreaks. Some that were less affected in the earliest weeks are now seeing escalating numbers of cases and deaths. And some that had large outbreaks have brought them under control," World Health Organisation Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.
