WHO warns of virus surges in Africa as global cases decline

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general of the World Health Organization, said on Monday that while new cases of Covid-19 have declined globally, many countries, especially within Africa, are experiencing increases.

Globally, the number of new Covid-19 cases reported to the WHO has decreased for seven weeks in a row, which is the longest sequence of weekly decreases during the pandemic, so far. While weekly cases are at their lowest level since February, deaths are not declining as rapidly. The number of deaths reported last week was similar to the week before, and the global decline masks a worrying increase in cases and deaths in many countries. The sharp increase in Africa is especially worrisome because it is the region with the least access to vaccines, diagnostics and oxygen. The available evidence suggests that the new variants have substantially increased transmission globally. That means risks have increased for people who are not protected, who are the majority of the world’s population. Right now, the virus is moving faster than the global vaccine distribution. At the G7 summit on Saturday, I said that to end the pandemic, our shared goal must be to vaccinate at least 70 percent of the world’s population by the time the G7 meets again in Germany next year. To do that, we need 11 billion doses. I welcome the announcement that the G7 countries will donate 870 million doses of vaccines primarily through Covax. This is a great help, but we need more and we need it faster.
