Covid-19 Update The dark clouds of the global pandemic Corona virus are not taking the name of dispersing. In a major statement on Tuesday, WHO chief Tedros Adhanam Ghebreyesus said that even after two years, COVID-19 remains a global emergency.
London, Agency. The outbreak of the global pandemic is not taking its name to stop. Many countries around the world are in the grip of this virus. In such a situation, a big statement of World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Adhanam Ghebreyesus has come out on Tuesday. He said that even almost two years after it was first declared, COVID-19 remains a global emergency. The emergency committee, made up of independent experts, said in a statement that rising cases of the corona virus and pressure on health services in many countries mean it still remains an emergency.
- Tedros Adhanam Ghebreyesus said-
“Omicron’s sub-variants, such as ba.4 and ba.5, continue to drive the wave of cases, hospitalizations and deaths around the world,” the WHO chief said.
- Da Tedros gave advice on planning and dealing with the pandemic. He said- ‘Planning and dealing with COVID-19 should also go along with vaccination for life-threatening diseases like measles, pneumonia and diarrhoea. It’s not a question of either/or, it’s possible, so do both. And new vaccines, including HPV and malaria, should be introduced.
- He highlighted the importance of vaccination. “Vaccines have saved millions of lives and it is important for governments to focus on promoting those most at-risk communities who are unvaccinated towards the 70 percent vaccination target,” the WHO chief said. Let’s build.
In the statement of WHO-
There was a 30 per cent increase in cases reported to WHO in the past fortnight. The WHO statement said, however, that the committee acknowledged that ‘decoupling’ was observed in cases of increased population immunity, largely from vaccines, hospitalizations and deaths. WHO Director-General Tedros accepted the committee’s advice. The United Nations health agency first declared the highest level of alert for COVID-19, called a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, on January 30, 2020.
