The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared that Covid-19 no longer represents a “global health emergency”.
The statement represents a major step towards ending the pandemic and comes three years after it first declared its highest level of alert over the virus.
Officials said the virus’ death rate had dropped from a peak of more than 100,000 people per week in January 2021 to just over 3,500 on 24 April.
The head of the WHO said at least seven million people died in the pandemic.

Whereas the pandemic emergency might have subside somewhat, it must be remembered that the death tole caused by the virus is more than eight (8,000,000.00) people.
People are still dying from the virus, at a rate of one person each and every three minuets, so take into account how many minutes are in one night and one day; calculate a forty hour week, then one can get the average amount of people still dying from the virus per month.
One will find it is yet an alarming amount of people being killed!
