Jagan Chapagain, Secretary General of the Red Cross, calls for more intensive preparation for a possible next pandemic.

From the Red Cross’s point of view, even three years after the outbreak of the corona virus, the world is still not sufficiently prepared for possible future pandemics. “The next pandemic could be imminent,” warned the Secretary General of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), Jagan Chapagain, on Monday in Geneva. “If the experience with Covid-19 doesn’t speed up our preparations, what will?” he asked.

According to current figures from the World Health Organization (WHO), at least 6.8 million people have died in connection with Covid-19. In its global disaster report, the Red Cross pointed out that the pandemic had triggered the largest death toll since World War II.
