The Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said on Wednesday that the world is in a race to prevent infection, reduce cases, protect health systems and safe life while offering highly effective and safe vaccines for populations at high risk, noting that the case burden is so high in many countries that hospitals And intensive care units are filling up to dangerous levels.

The Director-General of the World Health Organization confirmed, in a statement, that the epidemic continues to be a major public health crisis, adding: “We are in a race to save lives and livelihoods and end this epidemic, however, the World Health Organization is not only fighting the epidemic, but rather we are fighting many From disease outbreaks around the world, we capture and analyze hundreds of potential signals every week. Our work goes beyond emergency situations, we are working to improve human health in all its aspects, from birth to old age. ”

He added: “The World Health Organization is working day and night to accelerate science and provide solutions to the challenges on the ground and build global solidarity. This is important to address the epidemic as it is important to restart basic services again, from preventing mothers and their children from dying during childbirth, to addressing silent emergencies such as Antimicrobial resistance and mental health, to the prevention, screening and control of HIV, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases.

He said, “We must ensure the existence of integrated primary health care systems that effectively prevent, screen and treat infectious diseases and non-communicable diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and heart and lung diseases,” explaining that the latter “collectively leads to the death of more than 40 million people every year.”

Ghebreyesus explained that the Corona pandemic emerged how a new infectious virus puts those with underlying conditions at risk of death, and those countries with large numbers of people with health conditions put additional pressure on the health system. He added, “We ultimately need to invest in preparedness and monitoring to stop the pandemic, and to ensure that everyone has access to quality health services. Next year, scientists and public health experts from inside and outside the World Health Organization will continue to work with us to come up with solutions so that we can rebuild stronger health systems.” .

He called on all countries to increase testing and sequencing of the virus “so that we can monitor any changes and respond effectively to them,” stressing that in the end, “countries must consider their epidemiological situation and take appropriate measures based on the data, it is a difficult balance work, but in the end, it must be done.” Saving lives and protecting health workers and health systems should come first. ”

He said, “To break the chains of transmission, we must identify and find the infected, provide the care they need and really help them isolate them safely,” stressing: “We are in a race to prevent infection, reduce cases, protect health systems and save lives while rolling out highly effective and safe vaccines for populations at high risk.” . But if we work together, we can overcome the virus while also reducing the chance of the virus mutating further and threatening the health tools we currently have. ”

A team from the World Health Organization was prevented from entering China, specifically when two members embarked on their journey, and then one of them returned, as the authorities in China claimed that the problem lies in the lack of permits with entry visas.

The head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said he was “very disappointed” that China had not yet finished issuing access permits for the team “given that two members had already started their journey, and the others were unable to travel at the last moment.”
