The world is now in the early stages of the third wave of corona: WHO
The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tudors Adhanom Gebreasus, said the world was now in the early stages of the third wave of corona. This information was given in the report of the news agency ANI.
The WHO Secretary-General on Wednesday warned the world about the third wave of corona. Infections from the corona delta type are increasing in the world. In that context, the head of the UN health agency issued a warning about the third wave of corona.
“Unfortunately … we are in the early stages of the third wave,” said Tedros Adhanom Gebreasus.
The main reasons why the number of new corona infections and deaths in the world is rising, according to the WHO Secretary General. He said the main reasons behind the increase in both coronary heart disease and mortality were delta-type expansion, increased social mobility and inconsistent use of proven measures to protect public health.
At one time, corona infections and deaths worldwide were steadily declining, said Tedros Adhanom Gabreasus. But recently, corona infections and deaths are on the rise around the world. He expressed concern over this trend.The evolution of the coronavirus continues, the WHO Secretary-General noted. He said that more contagious species are coming because of this evolution.
Regarding the more contagious delta type of corona, Tedros Adhanom Gebreasus said that the type is now widespread in more than 111 countries around the world. If this type is not already the dominant type in the world,He fears that it will happen soon.
The head of the WHO spoke about the global disparity in the supply and distribution of vaccines. He called this inequality painful. In this context, Tedros Adhanom Gebreasus said that this inequality has given birth to two streams (tracks). On the one hand, there are countries that have a lot of vaccines. They are lifting the restrictions. Everything is unfolding. And on the other side of this trend are the countries that do not have vaccines. Their lives depend on the mercy of the coronavirus.
The head of the WHO said that many countries in the world have not received any vaccine so far. And most of the countries that have been vaccinated have not received enough.
However, the epidemic cannot be stopped by vaccination alone, said Tedros Adhanom Gebreasus. He called on the countries to follow appropriate and consistent strategies to control corona.
In the last one week, about 3 million people around the world have been newly diagnosed with corona. More than 55,000 people died at the same time.
World Health Organization experts say the number of diagnoses has risen by about 10 percent in the past week compared to the previous week. At the same time, the death rate has risen by about 3 percent, according to a report by the World Health Organization in Geneva on Wednesday.
According to the World Health Organization’s weekly epidemic bulletin, from July 5 to 11, 29,98,465 people around the world were diagnosed with coronavirus. During this time, 55,630 people died of the virus.
