According to the international organization, the epidemiological context is positive and encouraging, to which it added that last week there were just over 15,000 deaths as a result of the disease, the lowest number reported in seven days since March 2020.

In another order, the director of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom, specified that there is evidence of an evolution in the health situation worldwide, and therefore, the reduction in the performance of PCR tests in several countries causes the body to receive less information about transmission and sequencing of the virus.

“The threat of a dangerous new variant remains very real, and while deaths are declining, we still don’t understand the long-term consequences of infection for those who survive. When dealing with a deadly virus, ignorance is not bliss.” alerted the health authority.

He also added the need for countries to commit to taking measures that can end the Covid-19 pandemic, in order to end inequalities and fight the spread of the virus.



“Nearly 60 percent of the world’s population has already completed a primary course of vaccination, but only 11 percent of the population in low-income countries. Closing this gap remains essential to ending the pandemic as a global health emergency,” said Dr. Tedros Adhanom.
