கோவிட் -19 | WHO Omigron and Delta fear “tsunami”

(Berlin) The World Health Organization (WHO) administration said on Wednesday it was concerned about the possibility of a “tsunami” of infections caused by delta and omigron types. He is hopeful that by 2022 the world will be able to push back the worst epidemic.

Two years after the first case of the new corona virus was reported, leaders at the United Nations Health Organization warn that it is too early to confirm that preliminary data confirm that the Omigron variant causes a disease that is less severe. First detected last month in South Africa, Omigron already dominates new cases in the United States and many parts of Europe.

He urged all nations to take New Year’s resolutions to ensure that 92 of the 194 member states of the WHO miss the goal of vaccinating 40% of their population by the end of this year.

According to WHO data, the number of new cases reported worldwide increased by 11% last week over the previous week.

Europe recorded more than half of the new infections with 4.99 million cases, an increase of 3%. The United States, from north to south, has seen a burst of cases with a 39% increase. A 7% increase was seen in Africa.

“I’m very concerned that Omigron, being at the same time very contagious (and) circulating in the Delta, is leading to a tsunami of cases,” Dr. said.R. Tetros at a virtual press conference. This, he added, would “put great pressure on exhausted health workers and health systems on the brink of collapse.”

In its most recent weekly epidemiological report, the WHO maintains that the “general risk” associated with Omicron is “very high.” He cites “strong evidence” that this new variant is spreading much faster than its predecessor Delta.

The WHO also notes that the slowdown in the spread of the virus in South Africa and the initial data from the United Kingdom and Denmark reduce the risk of hospital admissions. However, additional data will be required before any decisions can be made.

Michael Ryan, WHO Director-General for Health Emergency Management, emphasizes the importance of being alert to early observations. D.R. Ryan argues that over the next few weeks it will be important to “keep the exchange of the two types as low as possible.”

The expert explains that Omigran’s cases first began to spread among young people and it is not really known how it will behave to the general public. D.R. Ryan admits that it’s embarrassing to make reliable predictions before looking at how vaccine protection works for the elderly or vulnerable.

The WHO declined to comment on the US and other states’ decision to reduce the mandatory isolation period. According to DR. Ryan, countries make choices based on a number of factors and the average incubation period can range from five to six days.

“We have to be careful about the changes in strategy at this time because we are watching,” he said, speaking openly about the increase in the strength of the Omicron variant.

Furthermore, dR. Tetros reiterated that the key role in ending the epidemic was to end global inequality. He said the failed goal of vaccinating 40% of the population this year was “not only a moral disgrace, it has claimed lives and given complete freedom to spread and transmit the virus.”

The WHO boss said many states missed the target because the most disadvantaged were given low doses and then the dose expired due to lack of syringes.

In spite of everything, dR. Tetros assures us that “this year will not only be a time of recovery from the acute phase of the epidemic, but will also pave the way for improved health care.”
