The World Health Organization warns Brazil of a new wave of Covid-19

The World Health Organization warned Brazil, on Wednesday, of a new wave of cases of the Covid-19 virus in the country. Entity Operations Director Mike Ryan highlighted the situation Europe and the United States faced with the arrival of the micron variant of the novel coronavirus.

“The probability is that we will continue to get new winds around the world, and South America and Brazil are no exception,” Ryan said.

Mike noted that the country has experienced two major waves of COVID-19 over a long period of time, a situation that has strained the health system, and highlighted the importance of vaccination in stabilizing the situation.

The entity director also demanded that local, federal and state authorities work together to prepare for a new wave of pollution.

All countries experienced these moments [de hospitais lotados] in this epidemic. […] “It really brings together the work of state and federal authorities, engages communities and publicizes the effectiveness of vaccines,” Ryan explains.

The Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom, has highlighted that the rapid progress of Ômicron must be fought with vaccines and public health policies.

“Micron is moving fast. In addition to vaccination, public health measures are also needed to contain the wave of infection, protect professionals and the health system, open communities and keep children in schools,” added Adhanom.

The director also compared the micron-delta cross-traffic to a “tsunami”. “I am very concerned that Ômicron, being more transmissible and circulating at the same time as Delta, is causing a tsunami of Covid cases.”

Last Monday, the world for the first time crossed the mark of one million cases identified per day, led by the United States, the United Kingdom and Spain.
