In the past week alone, 15,000 people around the world have lost their lives to COVID-19
In the past four weeks, the number of reported deaths from COVID-19 worldwide has increased by 35%.
This is reported by the World Health Organization (WHO).
In the past week alone, 15,000 people around the world have lost their lives to COVID-19.
“This is absolutely unacceptable when we have all the tools to prevent infections and save lives,” the WHO said.
As noted by the organization, the Omicron strain remains the dominant variant, and the BA.5 sub-variant accounts for more than 90% of all covid infections over the past month.
“With cold weather approaching in the Northern Hemisphere and people spending more time at home, the risks of more intense transmission and hospitalization will increase in the coming months — not only for COVID-19, but also for other diseases, including influenza,” the organization added. .
