The World Health Organization recalls that the epidemic continues to increase the number of deaths and recommends not to give up masks.
From July 19, the UK plans to lift all covid restrictions, including masks and social distancing. This step has caused fierce controversy among physicians, scientists, and the media. Wouldn’t this be a fatal mistake? Indeed, the number of infected continues to grow in the world, as, indeed, in the United Kingdom. Michael Ryan, WHO Emergency Program Manager, says:
“I call for extreme caution in the issue of the complete abolition of social measures at this time, all of this is fraught with consequences.”
The WHO reminds that the pandemic continues, and the coronavirus mutates and learns to successfully bypass antibodies. The highly infectious delta strain has caused a new wave as in Europeand in the states of the Asia-Pacific region, including Australia and South Korea. In Indonesia, a record number of deaths – more than 10,000 – were registered in just a day. The authorities buy oxygen from abroad, and in medical institutions they select patients.
Tuesday in Greece a surge in daily cases of coronavirus infection was recorded, their number increased to 1,797 in the last 24 hours, which led to a reaction from the authorities and an emergency statement from the Ministry of Citizens’ Protection.
Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, 4,000,000 people have already died in the world, and the number of infections has exceeded 185,000,000. Experts call for a global vaccination of the population and an equitable distribution of vaccines.
