In 2022 the coronavirus causing Covid-19 remained widespread but was significantly less fatal than it was in 2020–21; in most countries, it spurred only limited changes in public behaviour. However, the origins of the pandemic continued to be a politically divisive subject and remained unresolved at the end of 2022 (see section I). In addition, an escalating global mpox outbreak was declared a public health emergency of international concern in July 2022. While the mpox outbreak was brought under control, it reinforced the lesson from the Covid-19 pandemic that the international community needs to be much better prepared for responding to future pandemics. Negotiations continued in 2022 towards a new international treaty to strengthen pandemic prevention, preparedness and response.
