  • Worldwide death rate reduced by 15%
  • Cases of infection have decreased everywhere

WHO on Covid 19: The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Wednesday that worldwide deaths due to coronavirus infection fell by 15 per cent in the past week, while new cases of infection were recorded nine per cent less than before. In the latest weekly assessment of the Kovid-19 epidemic, the United Nations health agency reported that there have been 5.3 million cases of corona virus infection worldwide in the last week, while 14,000 people have died from the infection.

The World Health Organization said that new cases of corona virus infection are declining in all regions of the world except the western Pacific. Deaths from Kovid in Africa have increased by more than 183 percent, while in Europe they have fallen by about a third (33 percent) and in the Americas by 15 percent. Despite this, the World Health Organization has warned that cases of Kovid-19 are not fully reported because many countries have reduced their testing and are not following ‘protocols’ for monitoring the virus. Due to which very few cases are coming out from the reality.

Most cases of BA.5 variants are being found

The WHO said that at present the highest number of cases of infection in the whole world are coming from the Omicron BA.5 variant of the corona virus and it accounts for about 70 percent of the cases of infection worldwide. According to the report of ‘Genome Sequencing’ last month, 99 percent of the cases in the world are of different variants of Omicron. Earlier this week, Pfizer asked US regulatory officials to approve the company’s new vaccine, which helps protect against Omicron’s new variants BA.4 and BA.5.
