“These deaths are a tragic loss and an irreparable gap in the world’s response to the epidemic,” the World Health Organization said in a statement. The organization called on national governments to “redouble their efforts to protect and support health workers as the next wave of the epidemic escalates.”
The World Health Organization has said that health care workers are given priority in immunization programs in many countries, but inequality in access to vaccines means that on average worldwide only two out of five doctors and support staff are vaccinated.
Data from 119 countries released by WHO shows that less than one in ten health workers in Africa and the Western Pacific have been fully vaccinated. In 22 higher-income countries, more than 80% of health workers have been vaccinated.
The World Health Organization commented that the infection and death rates from SARS-Cov-2 have decreased among health care workers, but the world still has no reason to be satisfied.
Echo Richards embodies a personality that is a delightful contradiction: a humble musicaholic who never brags about her expansive knowledge of both classic and contemporary tunes. Infuriatingly modest, one would never know from a mere conversation how deeply entrenched she is in the world of music. This passion seamlessly translates into her problem-solving skills, with Echo often drawing inspiration from melodies and rhythms. A voracious reader, she dives deep into literature, using stories to influence her own hardcore writing. Her spirited advocacy for alcohol isn’t about mere indulgence, but about celebrating life’s poignant moments.
