"The end of a year is always an opportunity to look back, and to look forward.
As we look back, 2021 gave us many reasons to hope. Science delivered that hope, in the form of vaccines, which have undoubtedly saved many lives this year."-@DrTedros
@DrTedros "On the other hand, there is no doubt that the inequitable sharing of those vaccines has cost many lives.
2021 was a year in which we lost 3.5 million people to #COVID19 – more deaths than from HIV, malaria and tuberculosis combined in 2020."-@DrTedros

"It’s a pleasure to welcome our friends from the Palais back to WHO.
The last time we hosted you, in July last year, none of us could have imagined that almost 18 months later, we would still be in the grip of the pandemic."-@DrTedros, media briefing for Geneva-based journalists
"More than 3.3 million people have lost their lives to #COVID19 this year – more deaths than from HIV, malaria and tuberculosis combined in 2020.
And still, COVID-19 continues to claim around 50,000 lives every week."-@DrTedros
"That’s not to mention the unreported deaths, and the millions of excess deaths caused by disruptions to essential health services."-@DrTedros
