The death toll also continued to rise for the seventh consecutive week, with more than 93,000 deaths in the past seven days.
Mexico City (APRO). -Although experts from this organization assured the World Health Organization on Friday that despite the vaccination plans of different countries, the covid-19 pandemic continues to grow globally without reducing the number of infections and deaths.
The organization’s bi-weekly press conferences ensured that the number of global infections has remained at the highest level since the beginning of the pandemic, as they have provided more than 5.7 million new weekly cases for nine consecutive weeks.
The death toll also continued to rise for the seventh consecutive week, with more than 93,000 deaths in the past 7 days.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, “When health is in danger, everything is in danger,” he added, as a health crisis. It may have a huge impact on livelihoods, companies and the economy.
Instead, he said, “As long as we protect and promote health, people, communities, economies, and nations can prosper.”
He once again pointed out that in addition to “hygiene measures”, “universal health coverage” is also needed. Face the pandemic and eliminate current inequalities in vaccine application.
Regarding the last point, he pointed out that one billion vaccines have been used in the world, but 80% of them have been used in high-income countries, while the poorest countries have received only 0.3% of biological vaccines.
? ? This is unacceptable. This division is unacceptable. The WHO Director concluded that this is not only an ethical issue, but because we will not defeat this virus in a divided world?
