A decrease in the incidence of COVID-19 is recorded in the world

WHO records a decrease in the incidence of COVID-19 in the world for the second week

For the second week in a row, the increase in new cases of coronavirus has been declining, but “it is still far from the end of the pandemic,” the WHO stressed.

Globally, the number of new cases of COVID-19 and deaths from the coronavirus has been declining for the second week in a row, but it is too early to talk about the end of the pandemic. This was stated by WHO Director General Tedros Adan Ghebreyesus at a briefing on Monday, May 17.

“The situation in many countries continues to be of concern,” Ghebreyesus said, adding that “the pandemic is still far from over,” as the pandemic “will not end anywhere until it ends everywhere.”

Ghebreyesus also thanked donors for funding the pandemic response plan in 2020.

“However, the 2021 plan is underfunded,” Ghebreyesus said, pointing out that this limits the ability of WHO to respond to “emerging hot spots.”

“WHO urgently needs funding for the current response plan, which will allow us to expand support to countries,” summed Ghebreyesus.

In turn, the United States revealed the minimum increase in the number of COVID-19 cases since June – on the eve of 16,864 new cases of the disease and 262 deaths were identified.

In total, since the beginning of the pandemic in the United States, almost 33 million infected have been identified, almost 586 thousand patients with COVID-19 have died.

Recall that in the European Union a third of the population was vaccinated against COVID-19… EU countries plan to bring coronavirus vaccination to 70% of adults during July.

It was also reported that COVAX has problems due to the outbreak of coronavirus in India. India suspended vaccine exports in March – the COVAX initiative now lacks 140 million doses.
