Global epidemic update

New measures, new reports and highlights: an update on the latest development of the Kovid-19 epidemic worldwide.

The WHO office in China killed at least 2,929,563 people worldwide at the end of December 2019, according to an AFP report from official sources at 10:00 GMT on Sunday.

The United States is the most affected country in terms of both deaths and cases, with 561,783 deaths in 31,151,493 cases.

After the United States (561,783 deaths), the most affected countries are Brazil (351,334 deaths), Mexico (209,212 deaths), India (169,275 deaths) and the United Kingdom (127,080 deaths).

Vaccination against Kovid-19 will open to all French people over the age of 55 on Monday, with vaccines from AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson.

In France, where vaccination campaigns are delayed, vaccination coverage rates with two doses reach 75% among residents of retirement homes, but only 35% among 75-79-year-olds in the city, 70. 9% between -74 years, 4% between 65-69 years.

The country, for the third time, is approaching 100,000 dead.

Non-essential businesses, such as hairdressers, pub terraces or gyms, reopened on Monday in England, which has been limited since January. Other British nations are following their strategy.

The United Kingdom, the most bereaved country in Europe with more than 127,000 deaths, has greatly improved its health status thanks to a successful vaccination campaign.

The number of pollutants such as hospitalizations and deaths (less than 50 / day) is falling rapidly, but the United Kingdom is very cautious over fear of a wave of pollution in Europe. Foreign travel is prohibited until 17 May.

Libya launched a vaccination campaign this weekend with its Prime Minister Abdelhamid Dabiba. It mainly targets the “elderly and chronologically ill”.

The latest official toll stands at 166,888 cases of contamination, including 2,807 dead in a country of about seven million inhabitants, where health infrastructure has been weakened by conflicts over the past ten years.

In addition to 57,600 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine via the Kovacs device, two deliveries of 100,000 doses each of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine have already arrived in Libya.

In France, the vaccination campaign will not be sufficient in itself to prevent the epidemic, because the risk of resistant variants or the shortcomings of this campaign, confirms the epidemiologist Antoine Flohlt in the press.

“We have to get out of + with + to move towards a virus removal strategy. The major risk, along with the current strategy, is to return to this high plateau, which has looted the lives of the French from 10,000 to 15,000 cases since December ”, epidemiologists in the press point out.

He is thus in favor of prolonged closure of schools (which will have to reopen on 26 April after three weeks of imprisonment). “Stopping adult activities is important, but another big breeding ground is that of schools (…) If pollution returns to France, we have to maintain efforts beyond spring break”.
