revealed World Health Organization In its latest epidemiological report, it reported a decline in the number of global infections with the Corona virus by nine percent during the past week, for the second week in a row.
The number of global deaths also decreased by seven percent for the same period, the fourth consecutive decline. However, the organization warned of the delta mutant, which has become prevalent by ninety percent in the world due to its rapid transmission compared to other mutations of the virus.
The World Health Report indicates that Africa is the only region where the number of new infections increased last week by four percent from the previous week, while the Middle East recorded the largest decline by twenty-two percent.
The organization stated that the number of global injuries documented during the past week amounted to 3.6 million, while the number of global deaths in the same period reached 59,000.
The report indicates that Africa is the only region where the number of new infections increased last week by 4 percent from the previous week, while the Middle East recorded the largest decline by 22 percent, followed by South Asia by 16 percent and Eastern Asia by 11 percent. cent. As for Europe and America, where new infections are still exceeding the one million threshold per week, the decrease was 4 percent and 7 percent, respectively.
A number of health experts had expected an increase in cases of corona around the world soon, saying that “all people will likely contract the virus”, but they indicated that most of them will suffer from mild symptoms.
According to the British newspaper, “Daily Mail”, the experts said that “given the data indicating a decline in the effectiveness of corona vaccines over time, and given the ability of the delta variable to transmit at high speed, it is expected that cases of infection will increase significantly in the coming months.” “But most cases will be mild, and some will even be asymptomatic,” they added.
And an international scientific study stated that the “Covid 19” virus spreads more easily and quickly in the bronchi thanks to the “lectin” substance found in the cells of the immune system. The study was supervised by the Biotechnology Research Center in San Francisco, and was published by the journal Nature in its latest issue. The study showed the effect of this substance that helps the virus enter the cells of the immune system, revealing one of the mechanisms it uses to spread easily in the respiratory system.
