UN COVID-19 Video: Two Million Dead from the COVID-19 pandemic - UN Chief


Related Videos On: Two Million Dead from the COVID-19 pandemic - UN Chief


Our world has reached a heart-wrenching milestone: the COVID-19 pandemic has now claimed two million lives. Behind this staggering number are names and faces: the smile now only a memory, the seat forever empty at the dinner table, the room that echoes with the silence of a loved one. Sadly, the deadly impact of the pandemic has been made worse by the absence of a global coordinated effort. In the memory of those two million souls, the world must act with far greater solidarity. Now is the time. Safe, effective COVID-19 vaccines are being rolled out — and the UN is supporting countries to mobilize the largest global immunization effort in history. We are committed to making sure that vaccines are seen as global public goods — people’s vaccines. That requires full funding for the Access to COVID-19 Tools Accelerator and its COVAX facility – which is dedicated to making vaccines available and affordable to all. The world’s leading economies have a special responsibility. Yet today we are seeing a vaccine vacuum. Vaccines are reaching high income countries quickly, while the world’s poorest have none at all. Science is succeeding — but solidarity is failing. Some countries are pursuing side deals, even procuring beyond need. Governments have a responsibility to protect their populations, but “vaccinationalism” is self-defeating and will delay a global recovery. COVID-19 cannot be beaten one country at a time. We need manufacturers to step up their commitment to work with the COVAX facility and countries around the world to ensure enough supply and fair distribution. We need countries to commit now to sharing excess doses of vaccines. This would help vaccinate all health care workers around the world on an urgent basis and protect health systems from collapse. Others on the frontline, including humanitarian workers and high-risk populations, must be prioritized. To gain public trust, we must boost vaccine confidence and knowledge with effective communication grounded in facts. As the science continues to blaze new trails of hope, let’s also remember the simple and proven steps we can all take to keep each other safe: wearing masks, physically distancing and avoiding crowds. Our world can only get ahead of this virus one way — together. Global solidarity will save lives, protect people and help defeat this vicious virus.

UN COVID-19 Video: WHO calls for 'collective commitment' - COVID-19 Update (11 January 2021)


Related Videos On: WHO calls for 'collective commitment' - COVID-19 Update (11 January 2021)


WHO’s Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus called for “a collective commitment” so that within the next 100 days, COVID-19 vaccination for health workers and those at high-risk in all countries are underway, adding that “Governments, manufacturers, civil society, religious and community leaders must come together to create the greatest mass mobilization in history for equitable vaccination." Speaking to reporters today (11 Jan) in Geneva, Dr Tedros said, “just as we look forward on research and rolling out vaccines, we continue work on the origins. We are pleased that an international team of scientists – distinguished experts from ten institutions and countries – are commencing their travel to China to engage in and review scientific research with their Chinese counterparts on the origins of the virus.” WHO’s Dr Mike Ryan Executive stated,“I would love to be here saying there are other things we can do. All we can do is pick ourselves up and take the fight back to the virus.” He continued, “for those of you who have the virus under control, do not lose control. Look at what other countries are suffering as they have lost control of the virus. So if you're in a low incidence or a zero incident situation, keep it up. It is worth the effort.” Ryan added, “if you're in a, as many countries are, in a difficult transmission environment right now, there are no other options, but to do what you've done before.” WHO’s Dr Maria Van Kerkhove said, “this virus is controllable. Even these variants that we are seeing, having variants become identified because we have good sequencing that's happening globally and that's increasing globally.” She continued, “the fact that we are identifying variants that have increased transmissibility in some situations is not good. It doesn't help the situation. It makes it that much harder, but we still have control over this virus. There were increases in transmission and a number of countries before these variants were identified before these variants were circulating and that was due to increased mixing of people. There's no way around that. " Kerkhove also said, “we changed our mixing patterns over the summer into the fall and especially around the Christmas and New Year holiday.” She said, “the number of contacts that individuals had and their families had increased significantly over the Christmas and New Year holiday. And that has had a direct impact on the exponential growth that you have seen in many countries.” Kerkhove added, “some of the exponential growth we've seen in countries is almost vertical. It's not even at a slant, it's almost vertical, but that doesn't mean we've lost the battle.”

UN COVID-19 Video: COVID-19 Vaccine News: Low & Middle-income Countries Not Receiving Vaccine Yet - WHO (8 Jan 2021)


Related Videos On: COVID-19 Vaccine News: Low & Middle-income Countries Not Receiving Vaccine Yet - WHO (8 Jan 2021)


The WHO urged “countries that have contracted more vaccines than they will need” and those who control the global supply of the Covid-19 vaccines “to donate and release them to COVAX immediately, which is ready today to roll them out quickly. " According to WHO, 42 countries are currently administering COVID-19 vaccines. 36 of these are high-income countries and six are middle-income countries. “So, there’s a clear problem that low- and most middle-income countries are not receiving the vaccine yet. This is a problem we can and we must solve together through COVAX and the ACT-Accelerator. " Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO’s Director-General said at the the press conference in Geneva on Friday (8 Jan). “At the outset, rich countries have bought up the majority of the supply of multiple vaccines,” Tedrs said. “Now we’re also seeing both high and middle-income countries, that are part of COVAX, making additional bilateral deals. This potentially bumps up the price for everyone and means high-risk people in the poorest and most marginalized countries don’t get the vaccine. " He also warned against people becoming “complacent” as the vaccination campaign is gaining momentum. "This is a very dangerous time in the course of the pandemic,” he said. ” Over the past few days, we have seen some of the highest numbers of deaths recorded at any point in the pandemic. This is happening because, over previous weeks, there has been a lack of compliance with what health authorities are advising in several countries." Dr Mike Ryan, the Executive Director of the WHO’s Health Emergencies Programme also warned against a prospect “where we see large proportions of people vaccinated in some countries and no one vaccinated in other countries,” pointing to vulnerable groups and frontline workers at risk in every country.
