More than 20 national leaders, including France’s Emmanuel Macron, Britain’s Boris Johnson and Germany’s Angela Merkel, wrote a piece
published in several media outlets on Tuesday warning that it is a question of “not if, but when” the next health crisis strikes.
The piece calls for greater international co-operation and says countries should avoid isolationism and nationalism.
“There will be other pandemics and other major health emergencies. No single government or multilateral agency can address this threat alone. The question is not if, but when,” the article states.
