The special envoy of the World Health Organization (WHO) for the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, Dr. David Nabarro, said that the pandemic is now “raging” around the world. The pandemic is particularly causing “extreme suffering” in rural areas, he said.
Nabarro said this on the air of Sky News.
“I must say that the pandemic is raging all over the world. It (spreads – ed.) Not only in the countries proper (the world – ed.), But also in some rural areas,” Nabarro said.
According to him, the virus continues to circulate among people and cause “extreme suffering.”
“Even if we don’t read about it all the time (coronavirus – ed.), It is the cause of extreme suffering,” he added.
In early May, the World Health Organization (WHO) special envoy for the fight against the coronavirus pandemic, Dr. David Nabarro, warned that most countries in the world are entering a “very, very dark period.” According to him, the pandemic is accelerating significantly.
He believes that the main reason for this period is the lack of complete data, as the pandemic is spreading more and more in places where testing is not available, and therefore the incidence rates are significantly underestimated.
On June 2, the chairman of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adanom Ghebreyesus, said that of the 1.8 billion COVID-19 vaccines administered worldwide, only 0.4% were made in low-income countries. In his opinion, from the point of view of epidemiology and economics, this is an unacceptable trend.
