The world is no better than it was before Corona

A group formed by an organization came to an end Global health To assess the global ability to respond to epidemics, the world may not be in a better position to fight a new epidemic than it was when the corona virus appeared in 2019, and may in fact be in a worse position in terms of economic losses.

The Independent Commission for Disaster Preparedness and Response said in its report that the world is more vulnerable than ever to the lack of progress in reforms such as global health systems.

The authors of the report, led by former New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark and former Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, acknowledged some improvements, including increased funding for the World Health Organization, but said the process was slow.

“Now we have the same tools and the same system to deal with the threat of an epidemic in December 2019. Those tools are not enough,” Clark told reporters.

According to data released by Johns Hopkins University on Tuesday, more than a million people have died from Covit-19 in the United States since the outbreak began.

The impact of the corona virus is not over yet

This is a reminder that although most regions have abandoned precautionary measures against the deadly virus, the corona virus epidemic is not over yet.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that corona deaths in the United States are approximately 32% higher than those reported between February 2020 and September 2021.

Although vaccines against the corona virus have saved millions of lives, evidence of the vital importance of the booster dose continues.

But the risk of dying from Covit-19 is five times higher in those who have not been vaccinated than in those who have been vaccinated, the agency said.

Significantly, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 an epidemic on March 11, 2020.
