As of 4:50 a.m. Eastern Time on Monday, the mortality toll from JHU’s research was 5,000,425 around the globe. Covid-19 has claimed the lives of 197,116 individuals in the last 28 days, according to the research. Since it was initially discovered in the Chinese city of Wuhan at the end of 2019, the official worldwide coronavirus case count stands at 246.7 million.

For the first time in two months, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued an alert last Thursday warning of an increase in worldwide cases and fatalities.  The covid-19 epidemic is far from ended, Tedros warned Thursday, stressing that the rises in Europe exceed the declines elsewhere.

According to him, the epidemic has persisted mostly because of unequal access to instruments. He also noted that high-income nations had performed 80 times as many tests and given out 30 times as many vaccines as poor ones.

Wuhan to the rest of the world

Nearly two years after the first coronavirus fatality in China was announced on January 11th, 2020, it’s a somber turning point. Two days earlier, a 61-year-old man from Wuhan who had been exposed to the virus at the seafood market had died from respiratory failure brought on by acute pneumonia.

In early February 2020, the Philippines reported the first fatality outside of China: a 44-year-old Chinese man from Wuhan who had flown into the nation. After almost 20 months of no overseas travel from Australia, scenes of jubilation may be seen. Australian overseas travel has resumed after an almost two-year absence, to scenes of elation. Epidemics have progressed at varying rates in various nations. America has been the most struck, with the largest number of reported cases and fatalities there. JHU estimates that 46 million cases have been documented throughout the nation, with over 745,800 people dying as a result. Those numbers far exceed those from the deadly 1918 flu pandemic, which killed an estimated 200,000 Americans.

The epidemic is at its most severe point in Russia’s history. There were 40,096 illnesses and 1,159 fatalities on October 28th, the greatest number of daily cases and deaths since the outbreak began.

Moreover, the highly transmissible Delta form increased the number of cases and fatalities throughout the globe as it became the dominant Covid strain and overtook many nations and localities that had managed to get an early grip on the epidemic.

There is a vaccine shortage

Many lives have been saved by Covid vaccinations, but there is still a significant gap in vaccine availability, particularly in developing countries. Only 3.6 percent of the world’s 7 billion doses were provided in low-income nations.

“We would have hit our 40% objective in every nation by now,” Tedros added if the vaccine doses given worldwide so far had been divided fairly. Health professionals and vulnerable individuals in poor and middle-income nations are still unprotected because of a lack of testing, which keeps many countries oblivious to how the virus spreads and the globe blind to evolving strains. Those who need oxygen aren’t receiving it. Additionally, vaccination apprehension is widespread, especially in the United States.
