Former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark is one of the faces on the newly created committee by the World Health Organization (WHO) to assess the response to the pandemic. Despite the unknown of a new outbreak or when it will arrive, Clark admits that this "will happen again", being just a matter of time, advances "Reuters".

After being nominated, the former prime minister pointed out that the world must face future economic, social and political crises with its “feet on the ground”.

On Thursday, July 9, the WHO announced that Clark and former Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf will lead the panel that aims to examine the global response to the Covid-19 pandemic and understand the source of the outbreaks that have emerged. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the chosen ones are "independent and strong-minded leaders", highlighting the committee's freedom from the agency and governments.

After accepting the position, Helen Clark assumed that the job was "exceptionally challenging". In 17 years, the new coronavirus was the sixth time that WHO had to declare a worldwide public emergency, this being the first time that a separate committee of the organization has been appointed, whose objective is to hear experts.
