WHO issues a mortality and hospitalization warning due to Omicron in Covid

The World Health Organization (WHO) revealed that the global weekly number of reported cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) has nearly doubled over the previous six weeks and issued a warning that deaths are also rising, but currently not as quickly as cases.

“However, with additional instances, we can anticipate more hospital admissions and fatalities in the upcoming weeks. There are other sublineages of the Omicron variant, but BA.5 is the most contagious variant found to date, according to Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization, who made the opening remarks at the Covid-19 media conference on July 20.

“We have repeatedly stated that this virus will keep evolving and that we must be ready for any challenges it presents. That might be a fresh iteration of the known varieties or something entirely different, he suggested. Thus, all nations must be prepared. Countries are taking a big risk by dismantling portions of their pandemic response infrastructure.

Tedros urged nations to fill these deficiencies in resilience, labor, supplies, and surveillance.

“We’ll continue to see waves of illness, but we don’t have to keep seeing rounds of hospitalization and fatalities. We have the immunizations, testing, treatments, and public health tools necessary to save lives.
