UN COVID-19 Video: COVID-19: Every corner of every country in every part of the world must be protected (16 April 2021)

WHO’s chief Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said that in Papua New Guinea, there is large-scale community transmission in the capital Port Moresby and the Western Province, and all 22 provinces have now reported COVID-19 cases. Speaking to reporters in Geneva today (16 Apr), Dr Tedros said, “although in the last two weeks we have seen some decline. Rollout of the AstraZeneca vaccine started in late March, with 8,000 doses donated by Australia, and a further 132,000 doses from COVAX arrived this week. The vaccine is being offered first to priority groups, including health workers, to protect the local health system." The WHO’s chief also said, “through WHO’s Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network, or GOARN, 13 experts have been deployed to support the government with case management, epidemiology, infection prevention and control, laboratory support and information management.” Tedros continued, “emergency medical teams from Australia, Germany and the United States have also arrived to support the response, with others expected in the coming weeks. WHO is continuing to work closely with the National Department of Health and partners to provide technical advice and support, and to boost local health response capacity. This includes an emphasis on expanding testing." Jelta Wong, Minister of Health of Papua New Guinea also briefed the reporters. He said, "as of 12:00 p.m. on the 15th of April 2021, Papua New Guinea has reported 9,343 confirmed cases of COVID-19, including over 80 deaths. Half of these cases and half of these deaths were reported in the last month alone." Wong also said, "unfortunately, through the end of 2020, we started to feel complacent, where our people start to think because our numbers were so low that COVID-19 wasn't in our country. So, as everywhere else in the world, when they have Christmas, Papua New Guinea is no different.” The Health Minister continued, “a lot of people move out of the city, back to the villages and to the provinces and to meet with theie families. And the lacking of the measures at the time, because we when we opened it back up, we allowed a lot of movement back into the country and it caught us off guard. And within that Christmas, a lot of people were meeting and it sort of blew up in that sense, And within that Christmas, a lot of people were meeting and it it sort of blew up in in that sense." WHO’s Anna Maalsen said, "the situation in Papua New Guinea is critical. We're seeing infection rates climb and there's intense transmission of COVID-19 in parts of PNG, putting enormous pressure on hospitals, intensive care units, health workers and communities.” She continued, “the increasing number of health care worker infections are a cause for concern, and this will already have an impact on PNG's small and ageing workforce." WHO’s Dr Takeshi Kasai said, "the pandemic means that every corner of every country in every part of the world must be prepared and protected against COVID-19. And we must continue to pay special attention to the small countries who have so far been able to stop the virus coming in. In remote Pacific countries, even a few cases could have a devastating impact."

UN COVID-19 Video: Pandemic could be under control in months with concerted effort: WHO COVID-19 Update (12 April 2021)

WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the COVID-19 pandemic is “a long way from over,” but stressed that with a “concerted effort to apply public health measures alongside equitable vaccination, we could bring this pandemic under control in a matter of months.” Speaking at a press conference in Geneva today (12 Apr), Dr Tedros said January and February witness six consecutive weeks of declining cases, but the world has since seen seven consecutive weeks of increasing cases, and four weeks of increasing deaths, with last week being the “fourth-highest number of cases in a single week so far." The WHO chief said, “Make no mistake, vaccines are a vital and powerful tool. But they are not the only tool. We say this day after day, week after week. And we will keep saying it. Physical distancing works. Masks work. Hand hygiene works. Ventilation works. Surveillance, testing, contact tracing, isolation, supportive quarantine and compassionate care – they all work to stop infections and save lives.” Dr Tedros warned that intensive care units in many countries are “overflowing and people are dying – and it’s totally avoidable.” He explained that, in some countries, despite continuing transmission, “restaurants and night clubs are full, markets are open and crowded with few people taking precautions.” He added, “Some people appear to be taking the approach that if they are relatively young, it doesn’t matter if they get COVID-19. This disease is not flu. Young, healthy people have died. And we still don’t fully understand the long-term consequences of infection for those who survive.” The Director-General noted however that the decline in the first two months of the year “shows that this virus and its variants can be stopped,” adding that there are “many reasons for optimism.” Dr Kate O'Brien, Director of WHO’s Department of Immunizations, Vaccines and Biologicals, said reducing transmission alongside scaling up immunity through vaccination “reduces the likelihood of having emergence of variants that could escape from vaccine induced immunity.” She added that, while people have a desire to get on with more regular life as people become vaccinated, this is the “very time when we should be as diligent as ever.” Dr O'Brien said there was no data at this point on any “mix and match regimens” for vaccines, although “certainly there probably are individuals around the world who have had a different product for their second dose than the product that they had as their first dose.” She welcomed studies that would look into such regimens, because “clearly from a supply perspective and also from a programmatic perspective, where many countries have more than one and some countries up to three, four or five products in the country, would be very valuable to have these kinds of data to inform how best to use the vaccines.”

UN COVID-19 Video: World Health Day 2021 - Time to build a fairer, healthier world


Related Videos On: World Health Day 2021 - Time to build a fairer, healthier world


COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on all our lives - but it’s affected some of us far more profoundly than others. That’s why WHO is urging all countries to take steps to build a fairer, healthier world. ------ On World Health Day, 7 April 2021, we will be inviting you to join a new campaign to build a fairer, healthier world. We’ll be posting more details here shortly, but here’s why we’re doing this: Our world is an unequal one. As COVID-19 has highlighted, some people are able to live healthier lives and have better access to health services than others - entirely due to the conditions in which they are born, grow, live, work and age. All over the world, some groups struggle to make ends meet with little daily income, have poorer housing conditions and education, fewer employment opportunities, experience greater gender inequality, and have little or no access to safe environments, clean water and air, food security and health services. This leads to unnecessary suffering, avoidable illness, and premature death. And it harms our societies and economies. This is not only unfair: it is preventable. That’s why we are calling on leaders to ensure that everyone has living and working conditions that are conducive to good health. At the same time we urge leaders to monitor health inequities, and to ensure that all people are able to access quality health services when and where they need them. COVID-19 has hit all countries hard, but its impact has been harshest on those communities which were already vulnerable, who are more exposed to the disease, less likely to have access to quality health care services and more likely to experience adverse consequences as a result of measures implemented to contain the pandemic.

The World Health Organization (WHO) chief hailed support for an international pandemic treaty to shield the world from future health crises. Twenty-five heads of government and international agencies have endorsed the treaty, which would signal high-level political action needed to protect the world from future health crises. The international community should work together “towards a new international treaty for pandemic preparedness and response” to build a more robust global health architecture that will protect future generations, world leaders said in a commentary published today in several newspapers around the world. “There will always be new pathogens with pandemic potential,” said WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. “It’s not a matter of if but when.” #shorts
