In the variants of COVID-19, and certain countries have limited access to vaccines, WHO believes 2021 may be more deadly than 2020. In other words, the record of death from the coronavirus this year is even higher.
At a press conference in Geneva, Switzerland, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus explained that COVID-19 had taken away 3.3 million people, But the number of victims may be even more deadly in 2021.
“#Coronavirus disease More than 3.3 million lives have been killed, and we expect the death rate in the second year of the pandemic to be much greater than in the first year. Combining public health measures and vaccination to save lives and livelihoods is the only way out”-@DrTedros

WHO believes that the COVID-19 pandemic could be more deadly in 2021
“COVID-19 has killed more than 3.3 million people, and we expect that the second year of the pandemic will be much more deadly than the first year.
Saving lives and livelihoods, combined with public health and vaccination measures, is not the only way out. “
The Director of WHO gave an example. American continentEspecially in the southern region, where there are still a large number of infections, and the infection situation is good… At least last week, South America COVID-19 deaths accounted for 40% of the total.
With this panorama, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus continues to insist that there is nothing else: Countries that have not yet survived the pandemic And they have a large number of people infected, so they cannot be distinguished from hygiene measures such as the use of masks, even those who have been vaccinated.
The WHO recalled this afternoon that India’s health crisis did not bring about a truce-this variant is even more prominent B.1.617, The health system is insufficient and the country has given up a large number of infections after health measures-some countries do not have enough vaccines, and countries with good vaccination coverage can donate vaccines to Kovacs.
As you know, COVAX is International effort The aim is to provide vaccines to countries with fewer resources or developing countries (such as the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, and even Bolivia).
However, the system has not yet reached the coverage required by the WHO. Only on this Friday, the director of the organization asked the United States and other countries to stop using the system. Donate vaccine doses to COVAX, Instead of applying it to young people.
