Corona virus: Despite Vaccine, It could kill 2 million globally, WHO


"Lockdown is almost the last resort and to think that we are talking about lockdown again in September is a very bad and sad idea," Dr Ryan told reporters at the World Health Organization's headquarters in Geneva. '

The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the corona virus could cause up to two million deaths worldwide before effective vaccines are widely used in the future.

The head of the World Health Organization's emergency department, Dr Mike Ryan, said the death toll could rise if concrete steps were not taken globally.

Since the onset of the Corona epidemic in China, the virus has killed one million people worldwide. The number of people infected with the corona virus has been steadily rising and has so far infected 32 million people worldwide.

With the onset of winter, the second wave of corona has been witnessed in most of the northern countries of the world and people are being affected by it on a daily basis.

So far, the United States, Brazil and India have been the most affected by the epidemic, with a total of 1.5 million people in the three countries affected by corona.

However, in recent days, the number of victims of Code 19 in Europe is increasing again and restrictions and lockdowns similar to the rise of the first wave of Corona are being re-imposed in these countries.

He urged European countries to try to find out for themselves whether they have taken all precautionary measures such as testing and tracing, quarantine and social distance to avoid restrictions such as lockdown.

Speaking to reporters at the World Health Organization's headquarters in Geneva, Dr Ryan said: "Lockdown is almost finally resolved and to think that we are talking about lockdown again in September is a very bad and sad idea. ۔ '

What did he say about the killings?

2 million deaths worldwide before corona vaccine becomes available? In response, Dr. Ryan said, "It's not impossible."

He added that with the improvement in the treatment of the epidemic, the death rate is decreasing. But good treatment and an effective vaccine may not be enough to prevent these deaths from reaching 2 million.

Dr. Ryan called on governments around the world to use all available means to control the spread of the epidemic, asking, "Are we ready to avoid this death toll?"

"The number of possible death tolls of the epidemic  is not only being considered, but unfortunately it could be possible," he added.

The global situation

Strict social distance and business restrictions are being imposed around the world to prevent the second wave of corona and limit its spread.

The Spanish government has proposed a partial lockdown in Madrid, where the number of Corona victims is once again rising sharply. Local authorities have tightened restrictions in some districts of the city to reduce the spread of corona, which has affected about a million people.

On Saturday, restaurant and bar staff in the southern French city of Marseille protested the closure.

New sanctions have been imposed in the UK since Friday following new cases of corona.

The United States is the most affected country in the world by Corona and the number of victims there is increasing daily. Business restrictions have been lifted in some states.

Dr. Anthony Fauchi, an epidemiologist in the United States, said that the first wave of corona virus in the United States has not yet been eradicated because there has been no significant reduction in the number of new cases since the outbreak began. Is.


Israel has also tightened trade and travel restrictions. Israel is the first country in the world to impose a second national lockdown in the wake of the second wave of epidemics.
