Pandemic To Be ‘Far More Deadly’ This Year !

Pandemic- The director general of the World Health Organization Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said: “We are on the verge of making the second year of the epidemic even more dangerous than the first.”
Geneva: World health experts issued a stern warning on Friday that the second year of Covid-19 was expected to be “deadly”, as Japan exacerbated the state of emergency amid growing calls for the Olympics to be canceled.
“We are in the process of making the second year of the epidemic even more dangerous than the first,” said World Health Organization director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. Pandemic

The situation was further darkened in Japan when a coronavirus emergency took place in three other regions just ten weeks before the Olympics, while campaigners applied for more than 350,000 signals demanding that the Games be canceled.

With Tokyo and other areas already under urgent orders until the end of May, Hiroshima, Okayama and northern Hokkaido, which will host the Olympic race, will now join.

The move to fight the fourth wave of putting the medical system in Japan under pressure comes with public opinion strongly opposed to hosting the Games this summer.

Kenji Utsunomiya, a former Tokyo state governor, has urged the organizers of the Games to “put life first” rather than the event as he submits an application to senior officials.

The epidemic has killed at least 3,346,813 people worldwide since the virus first appeared in late 2019, according to AFP official statistics.

There was also bad news in Taiwan and the capital was permanently closing down entertainment venues, libraries and sports facilities after the first outbreak of ailments among pilots. Pandemic

The island was the world leader in the epidemic, with only 1,290 cases confirmed and 12 killed.

Taipei’s decision, which has been in effect since Saturday, includes bars, dance clubs, karaoke lounges, nightclubs, saunas and Internet restaurants as well as hostess clubs and restaurants. Pandemic

Sputnik drugs reach India

The first batch of tokens for the Sputnik vaccine – reportedly worth 150,000 – arrived on May 1 and a second delivery is expected in the next few days.

Many of India’s leading drug manufacturers have contracts for local production of Sputnik V with the aim of producing more than 850 million doses of jab a year.

Greece kicked off its tourism season on Friday, hoping to turn around a bitter summer last year.

“I’m still going to wear a mask inside,” said Mubarak Dahir, a 57-year-old visitor to the capital Washington, visiting from Florida. “I think it’s too early, it’s a little dangerous to believe we’re so far away.”

About 60 percent of U.S. adults have now received one or more doses, while cases drop dramatically, reaching a seven-day average of 38,000 or 11 per 100,000.

And the US vaccination campaign for 12- to 15-year-olds began on Thursday in earnest following the approval of the Pfizer vaccine at this age.

“I understand why some countries want to vaccinate children and their youth, but at the moment I urge them to consider and instead offer vaccines to Covax,” said WHO chief Tedros.
