The death toll from the epidemic is almost equal to the population of Kiev, Ukraine or Caracas, Venezuela.
The number of deaths from the coronavirus worldwide has peaked at three million, with more than 140 million in the wake of repeated disruptions to vaccination campaigns and growing crises in places like Brazil, India and France.
The death toll as of Saturday, compiled by Johns Hopkins University, is almost equal to the population of Kiev (Ukraine), Caracas (Venezuela) or Lisbon (Portugal). This is Chicago II. 2. More than a million population and Philadelphia and Dallas combined.
And the actual number is believed to be significantly higher, possibly due to possible government secrecy and a number of other factors neglected in the early stages of the first published outbreak in the Chinese city of Wuhan in late 2019.
In January of this year, when the world was on the verge of two million deaths, vaccination began in Europe and America.
Today, vaccinations are in progress in more than 190 countries, although progress in controlling the virus has changed dramatically.
While campaigns in the United States and the United Kingdom have had a profound effect and people and businesses have begun to think about life after the epidemic, other places, mostly poor countries but some rich people are also lagging behind in gunfire and new lockdowns and other Imposed restrictions.
“We don’t want to go as an epidemic in 16 months, where we have evidence of control,” said Maria Van Kerkhov, one of the World Health Organization’s Kovid-19 experts.
In Brazil, where nearly 3,000 people die every day, accounting for a quarter of the world’s deaths in recent weeks, the crisis has been described by a WHO official as a “hell of anger.”
A more contagious form of the virus has spread across the country.
With the number of cases increasing, hospitals are running out of highly critics. As a result, there are reports that some physicians continue to supply keys and even keep patients tied to their beds while breathing trachea.
President Jay Bolsonaro, who has received the virus relatively more than the flu, said for months his health ministry had placed a big bet on a single vaccine, ignoring other manufacturers. When the obstacles came, it was too late to get the big ones on time.
In India, the increase in cases in February after a few weeks of uninterrupted decline surprised the authorities. In India, driven by a variety of viruses, India witnessed more than 200,000 infections daily last week, bringing the total number of cases to more than 14.5 million.
The WHO recently described the vaccine supply situation as uncertain.
An estimated 600 countries will not receive any more shots until June. To date, the global initiative for equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines has supplied approximately 40 million doses to more than 100 countries, enough to cover just 0.25 percent of the world’s population.
Globally, about ৮ 87 percent of the 70,000 million doses distributed have been given to rich countries.
One in four people in rich countries has received the vaccine, compared to one in more than 500 in poor countries.
In recent days, the United States and some European countries have blocked Johnson & Johnson’s CVID-19 vaccine, and authorities are investigating extremely rare but dangerous blood clots. The AstraZeneca vaccine has similarly been delayed and restricted due to fears of freezing.
