The World Health Organization (WHO) has again warned the world about the corona virus. The WHO said Wednesday that the epidemic is not over yet. The agency said the number of people infected with the coronavirus worldwide had risen by 6 percent in the past week. However, the death toll from the corona virus has dropped.

The WH warns that until all countries are vaccinated, the world will continue to fight the growing contagion of covid and its new forms. “We all want to move forward with the epidemic, but no matter how far we go, the epidemic is not over,” said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanam Ghebreiss. Until we get high immunization coverage in all countries, we will face increased infection and new forms.

Tedros added that the number of coronavirus cases worldwide continues to rise. Its prevalence is increasing in Asia, while Europe is moving towards new waves. Many countries have seen the highest death rates since the onset of the epidemic. The virus is reflecting the speed at which Omicron spreads. Those who have not been vaccinated have a higher risk of death. Especially older people.

The head of the UN health agency said the WHO aims to vaccinate 70 per cent of the population in each country by the middle of this year, giving priority to health workers, the elderly and other at-risk groups. More than 12 million new cases were reported last week, according to the WHO.
