Corona infection spreads to 80 million children may 23 at 5:52
The World Health Organization and UNICEF-The United Nations Children’s Fund have released estimates that the spread of the new coronavirus will affect 80 million children without regular vaccinations, and said it is necessary to prevent other diseases against the backdrop of the spread of the virus.
The WHO’s Director-General Tedros held a regular press conference at his headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, on Wednesday, and expressed the prospect that the spread of the new coronavirus will affect about 10,000 children under the age of 1, with the spread of the new coronavirus in at least 68 countries.
He also expressed strong concern that the injury of children to vaccinations would lead to life-threatening consequences.
UNICEF’s Fore, who also attended the conference, said that many children, especially those who have not been vaccinated against measles, have been greatly affected.
The reasons for this include the suspension of vaccinations that are carried out without intervals, the fact that medical facilities are being urged to respond to the virus, and that parents are refraining from vaccinating their children for fear of being infected with the new coronavirus.
Mr. Foer said that “we should try to track and ensure that children who are not vaccinated are treated and that they need to prevent other diseases against the backdrop of the spread of the new coronavirus.”
WHO:”New infection stakes in South America”
“South America has become a new center for new coronal virus infections,” Mr. Ryan, who oversees crisis response at the World Health Organization, said at a press conference on Wednesday.
He added, “Many countries in South America have increased the number of infected people and there is widespread concern, but at the moment, Brazil is the most affected.”
In Brazil, infections have spread rapidly in areas where many poor people live, and according to the tally at Johns Hopkins University in the United States at 1 a.m.
