WHO Shared 2 Key Factors Why COVID Deaths Are On Rise Again

The World Health Organization has said that the corona virus epidemic is not over and there is a worldwide increase in the number of deaths due to Covid infection. World Health Organization (WHO) Covid-19 Technical Lead Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, the WHO’s technical lead, said in a recent media briefing that the death rate due to Covid is sad. He said that today there are arrangements with methods of treatment, vaccination and health units to give protection from Covid infection. In such a situation, the death of people from Covid is a painful incident.

According to Maria, these are the 2 main reasons for increasing the risk of death due to corona infection-

“Increased transmissibility obviously means more hospitalisation but till now, it hasn’t been proven that BA.5 can cause more severe diseases than other subvariants. And it is complicated three years into this pandemic when testing is reduced and sequencing is reduced, and that reduces our ability to analyze (the variants) as we don’t have the data that we need,” Maria Van Kerkhove said.

Another key factor which may push fatality rate is due to low rate of vaccination across the world. Van Kerkhove said a large number of the population are yet to receive the primary dose of COVID vaccine and this will be the driving force of mortality rate. The WHO had time and again stressed on the need of vaccination to fight the coronavirus disease.

10 lakh people died due to corona in the year 2022
At the same time, for some time the head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom, also made a statement that the threat of corona virus is not over yet. So far in the year 2022 itself, one million people have died due to corona, which is a proof of the persistence of the danger of this infection.

According to the data, since the beginning of the corona virus epidemic (December 2019) till now the health of the global population has seen a lot of impact of this virus. Millions of people have been infected worldwide due to different variants of the corona virus, while more than 64 lakh people have died due to Covid-19 infection so far.
