It’s been nearly three years since COVID-19 first emerged.

The disease has killed 6.5 million people and infected more than 600 million others around the world.

The death toll last week was the lowest since March 2020 when the pandemic was declared.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says the end of the pandemic is “in sight” but has warned against complacency.

Is that assessment realistic?

And what lessons can be learned in case we face another outbreak?
