Brazil needs to prepare for new wave of Covid, WHO alerts – News

The World Health Organization, on Wednesday (29), warned Brazil of a new wave of Covid-19 cases in the country. Entity Operations Director Mike Ryan highlighted the situation facing Europe and the United States with the arrival of the Micron variant of new corona virus.

“We will probably continue to broadcast airwaves around the world, and South America and Brazil are no exceptions,” Ryan said.

Mike said the country has seen two major waves of Covid-19 over a long period, a situation that has strained the health system and overcrowded hospitals. He stressed the importance of vaccination to stabilize the situation.

The entity director has also asked local, federal and state authorities to work together to prepare for a new wave of cases.

All countries experienced these moments [de hospitais lotados] in this epidemic. […] Ryan explains that there is a real need for joint action by state and federal authorities, to engage the community and spread the effectiveness of vaccines.

Director general Who is theTedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declared that the rapid progress of Micron must be fought with vaccines and public health policies.

“Micron is moving fast. Not only vaccination, but public health measures are also needed to stem the wave of infection, protect professionals and the health system, open communities and keep children in school.”

Tedros compared the reciprocal circulation of a micron and a delta to a tsunami. “I am very concerned that Ômicron, being more transmissible and circulating at the same time as Delta, causes a ‘tsunami’ of cases.”

On Monday (27), the world crossed the mark of one million cases per day, for the first time. The increase was led by the United States, the United Kingdom and Spain.
