The weekly number of deaths linked to Covid-19 “is decreasing in every region, except in Europe”. In the world “we are now at the lowest level for almost a year. But nearly 50,000 deaths” in 7 days “is still an unacceptable high level, and the real number is certainly higher.” This is what the director general of the World Health Organization (WHO) underlined, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, today during the usual briefing on the Covid situation. The dg cited precisely the WHO European region, “where several countries are facing new waves of cases and deaths. And, of course, deaths are highest in countries and populations with the least access to Covid vaccines”, he pointed out. .
