UN COVID-19 Video: COVID-19 Children Vaccination - COVID-19 Update - WHO (10 May 2021)
World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus today (10 May) said COVID-19 cases and deaths have recently declined in most regions, “but it’s an unacceptably high plateau, with more than 5.4 million reported cases and almost 90 thousand deaths last week.” Briefing journalists from Geneva, Tedros said, “any decline is welcome, but we have been here before. Over the past year, many countries have experienced a declining trend in cases and deaths, have relaxed public health and social measures too quickly, and individuals have let down their guard, only for those hard-won gains to be lost." The WHO official said, “vaccines are reducing severe disease and death in countries that are fortunate enough to have them in sufficient quantities, and early results suggest that vaccines might also drive down transmission. But the shocking global disparity in access to vaccines remains one of the biggest risks to ending the pandemic." He said, “there will come a time when we can all take off our masks, when we no longer have to keep our distance from each other, when we can once again go safely to concerts, sporting events, rallies and restaurants – as people in some countries are able to do now because they have no transmission. But for most of the world’s population who are not yet vaccinated, we’re not there yet." Tedros announced the launch of the “Together for India” appeal to raise funds to support WHO’s work in India, “including the purchase of oxygen, personal protective equipment and medicines." The WHO’s COVID-19 Technical lead, Dr Maria Van Kerkhove said, “in consultation with our virus evolution working group and our EPI teams and our lab teams internally, there is some available information to suggest increased transmissibility of B.1.617. There is a preprint that is out. So, this is a paper that has not undergone peer review, and it's on a limited number of patients suggesting that there is some reduced neutralisation. And as such, we are classifying this as a variant of concern at the global level." For her part, WHO’s Chief Scientist, Dr Soumya Swaminathan said, “what we know now is that the vaccines work, the diagnostics work, the same treatments that are used for the regular virus work, so there's really no need to change any of those. And in fact, people should go ahead and get whatever vaccine is available to them and that they're eligible for."

UN COVID-19 Video: USA to Support Vaccine Intellectual Property Waiver - COVID-19 Update - WHO (07 May 2021)

The US announcement to support a temporary waiver of intellectual property protections for COVID-19 vaccines is “a significant statement of solidarity and support for vaccine equity,” WHO chief Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus said on Friday (7 May), urging other countries “to follow their example." "We are in an unprecedented crisis that requires unprecedented action,” Dr Tedros said. “Cases are at a record high, almost 100,000 people are dying globally each week, and we have a chronic vaccine crisis.” Insisting that the World Trade Organization provisions for Intellectual Property waivers were designed “precisely for a situation like this,” Dr Tedros asked, “if we don’t use them now, then when?” He also reminded that intellectual property waivers will need to be accompanied by transfer of technology and know-how for these difficult-to-make vaccines. Announcing the WHO’s Emergency Use Listing to Sinopharm Beijing’s COVID-19 vaccine, making it the sixth vaccine to receive WHO validation for safety, efficacy and quality, Dr Tedros said “the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization, or SAGE, has also reviewed the available data, and recommends the vaccine for adults 18 years and older, with a two-dose schedule.” “Vaccines remain a vital tool,” Dr Tedros said. “But right now, the volume and distribution of vaccines is insufficient to end the pandemic, without the sustained and tailored application of public health measures that we know work."

UN COVID-19 Video: COVID-19 surge in India - UN to support
The United Nations has deployed all the personnel and resources at its disposal to help Indians deal with the deadly surge in COVID-19 that has seen more than 300,000 reported new cases per day, for almost two weeks now, and left many hospitals overwhelmed. The World Health Organization’s (WHO) India Representative, Dr. Roderico Ofrin, said in an interview that tried and trust methods of bringing down the numbers would surely work, if India can get “ahead of the game”. With vaccination now open to all over 18, and 165 million already inoculated, he said that shots were only part of the solution, to bringing the multiple factors that have fuelled the surge, under control. https://news.un.org/en/audio/2021/05/1091192

17 September 2021 - According to the WHO/ILO Joint Estimates of the Work-related Burden of Disease and Injury, 2000-2016: Global Monitoring Report, the majority of work-related deaths were due to respiratory and cardiovascular disease. “It’s shocking to see so many people literally being killed by their jobs,” said Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General. "Our report is a wake-up call to countries and businesses to improve and protect the health and safety of workers by honouring their commitments to provide universal coverage of occupational health and safety services.”
