    核心提示:世界卫生组织(WHO)周四再次警告人们在抗击新冠肺炎的过程中不要自满,敦促采取协调行动和作出政治承诺,以挽救生命,防止疫情对经济和健康造成损害。“新冠肺炎大流行尚未结束,但结束在望……能够看到结束并不意味着我们已经结束,”世界卫生组织总干事特德罗斯·阿达诺姆·盖布雷耶苏斯在周四的新闻发布会上重申。他列举了流感仍在流行的原因
    The World Health Organization (WHO) on Thursday warned again against complacency in fighting COVID-19, urging for coordinated action and political commitments to save lives and prevent economic and health damage from the ongoing pandemic."(COVID-19) pandemic is not over, but the end is in sight ... Being able to see the end does not mean we are at the end," WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus reiterated at a press briefing on Thursday.He cited as reasons that the pandemic is still inflicting a death toll of 10,000 per week, most of which could be prevented, while large vaccination gaps exist especially in low- and middle-income countries."That means everyone needs to use, when needed, the simple tools that are available to stay safe: distancing, masks and ventilation. And it means everyone needs access to the medical tools to stay safe: vaccines, tests and treatments," he added.The WHO chief's remarks came as a working group of ACT-Accelerator Facilitation Council released on Thursday its latest report, warning that the global pandemic is not over and that it's no time for COVID-19 complacency.Co-founded by WHO and partners, the ACT-Accelerator is a global collaboration to accelerate the development, production, and equitable access to COVID-19 tests, treatments, and vaccines.The report concludes that many countries are far from meeting global targets on vaccination coverage, testing rates, and access to treatments and PPE. And while progress is being made, the global threat of COVID-19 is far from over, particularly for high-risk groups in lower-income countries.According to the report, COVID-19 vaccination rates in low-income countries stand only at 19 percent, compared to almost 75 percent in high-income countries; and the roll-out of new lifesaving COVID-19 treatments including oral antivirals in low and lower-middle income countries remain limited or non-existent.The working group recommends that equitable access to COVID-19 countermeasures and preparation for the delivery is critical for countries to integrate the management of the virus into their primary health systems, as part of a longer-term strategy.It highlights the decline in testing rates and the lack of equitable access to new antiviral treatments for COVID-19, emphasizing that diagnostics and therapeutics, as well as associated test-to-treat strategies, are fundamental components of pandemic response, both for COVID-19 and future health threats.WHO warns future waves of COVID-19 infection as deaths dropCOVID-19 hospitalizations, deaths may increase with colder weather: WHOThe World Health Organization (WHO) on Thursday warned again against complacency in fighting COVID-19, urging for coordinated action and political commitments to save lives and prevent economic and health damage from the ongoing pandemic."(COVID-19) pandemic is not over, but the end is in sight ...
