WHO senior official can’t bear it: This is not called coexistence with COVID-19
  

“Many of us are numb to the numbers… 1 million people died from Covid-19 this year, it’s not called coexistence with a virus.”

 

On August 26, Maria Van Kerkhove, the technical director of the COVID-19 epidemic response of the World Health Organization, said in the live broadcast of the COVID-19 epidemic on the WHO social media channel that the death toll of 1 million this year ” It’s heartbreaking.”

She believes that countries around the world need to recognize the reality and “responsibly” coexist with the COVID-19 virus.

On August 25, the World Health Organization announced that 1 million people would die from Covid-19 in 2022, saying it was a “tragic milestone” given all the means to prevent deaths.

 

Maria van Kerkhove also bluntly said in a Q&A live event on the 26th that the death toll of 1 million is “heartbreaking”, and the testing, treatment, vaccine and other public health measures to control the virus have all played a role, but So many people are still dying from Covid-19.

 

“We are now in the third year of Covid-19 and we have the tools to actually prevent these deaths, which makes things even more tragic.”

 

“A lot of us have become numb to the numbers,” Kerkhove said. “We really need to look at the reality and reassess where we are. With 14,000 or 15,000 people dying from Covid-19 every week, we shouldn’t be in it. In a situation like this, it just shouldn’t be.”

 

Kokhov said that the COVID-19 epidemic is not over yet, but it can be brought to an end while people continue to live their daily lives. “We just need to think a little bit more and be a little bit more cautious.”

Kerkhov was also talked about “coexisting with the COVID-19 virus” in the live broadcast, she said: “A lot of people are talking about coexisting with the COVID-19 virus, but it must be coexisting in a responsible way.”

 

“One million deaths this year from Covid-19 is not coexistence with the virus; 15,000 deaths per week are not coexistence with the virus responsibly,” Kerhof said.

 

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus also talked about “coexistence with the new coronavirus” at a press conference on the 25th.

 

“With one million deaths from Covid-19 this year alone, when we’ve been in this pandemic for two and a half years, and we have all the necessary means to avoid those deaths, we can’t say, we Learning to live with Covid-19. We ask governments to step up their efforts to achieve 70% vaccination coverage of the entire population and, in the process, vaccinate all healthcare workers, the elderly and others most at risk.”

 

According to the latest statistics from Johns Hopkins University in the United States, as of 8:20 a.m. on August 28, Pacific Time, there were 600,449,934 cases of global COVID-19 pneumonia infections and 6,485,233 deaths.

 

 

 

Agence France-Presse said that in the past week alone, WHO received more than 5.3 million new confirmed cases of reports.

 

“This is a huge number, but it’s still underestimated.” Kerkhov said the results of home nucleic acid testing were not reflected in this surveillance data.

“We do see this virus spreading around the world intensively. Unfortunately, the virus is not going away,” Kerkhov said.
