Washington DC: The World Health Organization (WHO) expects coronavirus deaths to exceed 100,000 per week "in the near future". This was announced on Twitter by the leading WHO expert on emergency situations, Mike Ryan.
“Global deaths from COVID-19 are expected to surpass 100,000 per week in the near future (up from over 93,000 deaths recorded last week)”, - said a leading WHO emergency expert.
Earlier, the WHO said that the prospects for equitable access to vaccines against coronavirus were under threat: currently, vaccines are used almost exclusively in rich countries.
The day before, experts from an independent commission created by WHO to assess the measures taken to combat the pandemic accused the Organization and the Chinese government of responding too slowly to the spread of coronavirus at the initial stage.
