According to the World Health Organization on Wednesday, the coronavirus-related deaths worldwide have passed a grim milestone of 4 million.
The World Health Organization (WHO) on Wednesday said that it has recorded over four million COVID-19-related deaths globally.
The organization’s Director-General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, added that the overall death toll is likely underestimated.
“Compounded by fast moving variants and shocking inequity in vaccination, far too many countries in every region of the world are seeing sharp spikes in cases and hospitalization.”
He said during a virtual press conference that “this is leading to an acute shortage of oxygen and treatments, and driving a wave of deaths in parts of Africa, Asia and Latin America.”
“vaccine nationalism, where a handful of nations have taken the lion’s share, is morally indefensible and an ineffective public health strategy against a respiratory virus that is mutating quickly and becoming increasingly effective at moving from human-to-human.”
“At this stage in the pandemic, the fact that millions of health and care workers have still not been vaccinated is abhorrent.”
