WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warns that the world is going into the ‘early stages of another wave’

Japan’s women’s softball team won Tokyo Olympics 2020 on Wednesday, ushering in a game postponed by the pandemic that the World Health Organization called a celebration of hope as the number of COVID-19 cases rose.

The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic is in the early stages of a third wave, the head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, warned on Wednesday as he warned of a worldwide rise in the spores of the Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. The Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros A.D.H.E.R.G. He will attend a daily press briefing on COVID -19, the disease caused by novel coronaviruses, on 11 March 2020 at the headquarters in Geneva. The world is “in the early stages” of another wave of infections and deaths caused by Covid-19, said U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon Wednesday.

The WHO director Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus added that the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus continues to evolve, leading to more and more transmissible variants. The recent spread of the Delta variant of coronaviruses has been driven by increased social mobility and inconsistencies in application of proven health and social measures, however.

Senior people and people with pre-existing conditions such as asthma, diabetes and heart disease seem particularly susceptible to the new coronavirus (NCOV). The expansion of the delta variant, owing to increased social mobility and inconsistent application of best practices in public health, is driving up the number of cases and deaths, according to the World Health Organization.

The WHO advises people of all ages to take measures to protect themselves from the new Coronavirus 2019 (NCOV), such as good hand and respiratory hygiene. As it is a virus, antibiotics should not be used for prevention or treatment.

An infectious variant of the coronavirus first identified in Britain has become the most common source of new infections in the United States, said the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a dramatic change that has led to a sharp increase in cases and deaths. Federal health officials announced in January that the strain, which first appeared in Britain, had become the dominant source of coronavirus infections in America, leading to a “painful increase” in cases and even deaths. New cases, hospitalizations and deaths have declined since their peak in January, but the number of new infections has increased and increased.

The average number of new cases reached 65,000 a day on Tuesday and was concentrated in the Michigan metro and New York City regions. After a 10-week period of steady decline, the number of deaths rose.

On March 19th, seven countries confirmed their first cases of coronavirus, according to the World Health Organization, including Kazakhstan, Gambia, Mauritius and Kyrgyzstan. New cases are also piling up in the US, Iran, Spain, France and Germany. More cases are reported each day than at the peak of the epidemic in China, stated WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus at a press conference on March 13.

The number of COVID-19 coronavirus infections worldwide passed the 300,000 mark at the weekend. The World Health Organization reported 330,935 cases worldwide with 14,510 deaths as of March 23. Deaths from Covid-19 in Italy exceeded those reported in China, with 473 people dying in the country within 24 hours.

On July 1 Russia began offering a COVID-19 booster vaccine to people in Moscow in a bid to stem an increase in coronavirus infections believed to be connected to the delta variant. Hans Kluge, European Director of the World Health Organization (WHO) Hans Kluge, called on countries to speed up their Covid 19 vaccinations to ensure maximum protection against the transmission delta variant of virus. The 10-week decline in coronavirus infections in Europe could end with a new wave in the region “if we remain disciplined,” Kluge said at a briefing the same day. 

Scientists who consulted the UK Government on its response to COVID-19 said England risked repeating last summer’s mistakes by lifting restrictions at a time when the infection rates were high.

By 21 June, more than four in five adults in the UK had received the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and 59.5 per cent had received at least two doses of the vaccine. Many countries have not received all vaccines, and most do not receive any at all.

He recalled the continuing decline in COVID-19 cases and deaths in recent months caused by increased vaccination rates in Europe and North America and sounded alarm about a new reversal of positive trends, reported by UN News. WHO chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan said on July 9 that the coronavirus pandemic is not slowing down. He said the virus is continuing to evolve, leading to more transmissible variants.

Tedros have warned that the world is in the early stages of another wave of infections and criticized differences in vaccines between countries. The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said the game would show whether the world had achieved the right plans and measures. The WHO chief also criticized the discrepancy in vaccines between rich and low-income countries.

Wave after wave of the coronavirus has rocked the fragile economy and unvaccinated population of South Africa, setting in motion a spiral of deaths, lockouts and anger which has fuelled the worst unrest in the country since the collapse of the white minority rule in 1994. The violence in South Africa – where only 28% of people are vaccinated against COVID-19 – as well as in countries like Sudan and Colombia is a stark example of how falling incomes and rising food prices can add to more than a year of pandemic suffering and exacerbate political instability. South Africa illustrates beyond human and economic dislocations how difficult it will be for many emerging economies to recover from the pandemic.
