Second year of Covid-19 is far more deadlier, cautions WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus

The World Health Organization on Friday in a serious warning said that the second year of coronavirus pandemic was set to be more deadlier than the first one. “We’re on track for the second year of this pandemic to be far more deadly than the first,” said World Health Organization’s director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

Speaking at a press conference he said, “In January, I spoke about the potential unfolding of a moral catastrophe”. Sadly, we’re presently seeing this work out. The few rich nations, that purchased up most of the inventory, lower-risk groups are presently being inoculated.

“The chief asked countries to stop vaccinating kids and to donate to poorer nations instead. “I understand why some countries want to vaccinate their children and adolescents, but right now I urge them to reconsider and to instead donate vaccines to Covax,” said the director-general.

“Because in low and lower-middle income countries, vaccine supply has not been enough to even immunise healthcare workers, and hospitals are being inundated with people that need lifesaving care urgently.”
