Risk of another epidemic: World Health Organization warns

Geneva: The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that epidemics of infectious diseases are spreading rapidly in 30 countries of the world, the main cause of which is climate change.

According to the details, an official of the World Health Organization has said during a press briefing at the headquarters in Geneva that the spread of the cholera epidemic is being observed in 30 countries in the African region and in Haiti.

Climatic changes are causing this year’s cholera epidemic to become more virulent and deadly.

According to WHO data, researchers say there are an average of between 1.3 million and 4 million cases of cholera worldwide each year, and between 21,000 and 143,000 cholera-related deaths.

Philip Barboza, head of the WHO team investigating diseases such as cholera and diarrhoea, said the increase in cholera outbreaks was completely unprecedented. This widespread outbreak is more deadly than previous years.

Regarding the increase in cases and deaths of cholera epidemics after a decline in the past few years, Barboza said that climate change is directly influencing the increase in the spread and deaths of the disease.

Experts say that cholera has also spread in refugee camps in Lebanon, Somalia and Nigeria this year. A WHO official has stated that cholera epidemics are clearly related to environments of poverty and insecurity.
