Source Title: novel coronavirus pneumonia is confirmed in over 100 million cases, and the United States accounts for about 1/4.
Novel coronavirus pneumonia cases were diagnosed in 100200107 cases and 2158761 cases died in Beijing, according to the latest real-time statistics from the World Health Organization. As of January 28th, 10 hours and 05 minutes (17 hours and 05 minutes in January 28th) in Central European time.
“Epicenter of the epidemic” from Europe to America;
Similar to more than 100 million confirmed cases in the world today, the high level of confirmed cases in any country or region is not overnight. When the novel coronavirus pneumonia was diagnosed in more than 1 million cases in April 3, 2020, the most severe area in the world is Europe.
According to novel coronavirus pneumonia reported in 26 this month, the United States has been the most confirmed case of new crown pneumonia since March 26, 2020. It has been maintained for almost 10 months now. CNN The rapid spread of the US epidemic has directly led to the Americas becoming the most serious area of COVID-19 in the world.
“Flattening” in the northern hemisphere and “sudden rise” in the southern hemisphere;
Different from the United States, with the implementation of restrictive measures to prevent and control the epidemic in many European countries, the epidemic development curve in Europe also has a short period of “flattening curve”.
The novel coronavirus pneumonia cases in Europe are still growing, but the number of new confirmed cases has dropped significantly since the end of 5 last year, and the epidemic situation has been slowing down until July.
But on the other side of the globe, South America is at the peak of an epidemic.
According to Michael & middot; Ryan, who’s head of emergency situations, on May 25 last year, infectious diseases tend to spread one by one, which means that in late 2020, where the first batch of outbreaks have subsided, the epidemic may return. When the northern hemisphere enters autumn and winter again, Michael Ryan’s warning has become a prophecy.
Mutated virus and the third epidemic hit one after another
On December 23, 2020, the British government announced the discovery of a more infectious variant of the new coronavirus. At this time, most countries in the world have ushered in the third round of epidemic, and this round of epidemic is more turbulent than before.
As of January 27 this year, according to who statistics, 70 countries and regions around the world have found mutated new coronavirus reported by the UK. In addition, different mutant viruses have been found in Brazil, South Africa and other countries, and have spread in many countries.
The mutated new coronavirus, together with the third round of epidemic situation, has once again tightened the epidemic prevention measures relaxed by various countries. At this time, a number of new crown vaccines have also been launched, and most countries with serious epidemic have placed their hopes on vaccines.
Mad vaccines and forgotten Africa
On January 22, 2021, AstraZeneca said that it would reduce the initial delivery of new crown vaccines to EU countries due to lower than expected production capacity.
But the move has met with strong opposition from the European Union and European countries. On the 25th, European Commission member kiriaths said, “the EU can’t accept this.”;. The Italian government has threatened to sue AstraZeneca.
According to who data, as of the 25th, about 40 million doses of neocrown vaccine had been injected in 50 high-income countries. But in Africa, Guinea is the only low-income country to provide people with the new vaccine, and only 25 people in that country have been vaccinated.
On January 25 local time, who director general Tam Desai said that if the new vaccine is not equitably obtained, the world will be on the verge of catastrophic moral failure.
Tan Desai’s warning is not groundless. The research of the research foundation of the International Chamber of Commerce shows that unfair distribution of vaccines may cause as much as US $9.2 trillion in global economic losses, and nearly half of the losses, namely US $4.5 trillion, will occur in the richest economies.
