"The pandemic is not over": WHO says COVID-19 cases increased in 110 countries

On Wednesday, the World Health Organization (WHO) said the COVID-19 pandemic was changing, but it was not over and warned that cases were increasing in 110 countries.

“This pandemic is changing, but it’s not over yet. Decreased reports and genomic sequences threaten our ability to track the # COVID19 virus. That is, Omicron’s tracking and future new. The analysis of mutations has become difficult, “said WHO Secretary of Tedros. Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.

He added, “COVID19, which is being promoted by BA.4 and BA.5 in many places, has an increasing number of cases in 110 countries, a 20% increase in cases worldwide, and six WHO regions. Deaths are on the rise in three of them, even though world numbers are relatively stable. “

Ghebreyesus said WHO called on all countries to vaccinate at least 70% of the population while explaining to the media about COVID-19 and other global health problems.

He further stated that over the past 18 months, over 12 billion vaccines have been distributed worldwide.
