WHO spox expects pandemic to end in 2022

The world is likely to win a battle against the coronavirus pandemic at the beginning of the next year, a spokesman for the World Health Organization (WHO), Hans Kluge (pictured), asserted on Friday.

"We have tools, diagnostic programs, we have a vaccine. I think 2021 will be another year of covid. But now we can better predict and manage events. In 2020 there was only uncertainty in both health and politics," Kluge said in an interview with Die Welt.

The WHO official also stressed that it is "apparently inevitable" Europe will introduce vaccination passports, though he has doubts about that move as it could "aggravate inequality."
