Tedros Adanom Ghebreyesus, head of WHO, warned of a possible sharp increase in the total number of people infected with coronavirus to 300 million. The worsening of the situation, as he noted during the briefing, is predicted for the beginning of 2022.
At the same time, the head of the World Health Organization clarified that in reality the number of people infected with coronavirus is much higher than registered by the organization.
Can the alleged spike in disease be avoided? Only in the case of a deliberate fight against the spread of infection by all citizens, the head of WHO stressed. Currently, doctors are sufficiently equipped with the means for the prevention, detection and treatment of coronavirus. Research does not stop for a day, their analysis allows you to better understand the nature of the virus and find new tools for influencing it at different stages of the disease.
Gebreyesus warns that humanity has entered a “period of real danger.” The spread of the coronavirus is facilitated by a slowdown in vaccination and unequal availability of drugs, increased social contacts, and not always consistent measures introduced in the field of health.
