Apr 12 - Covid pandemic growing ‘exponentially’ at more than 4.4 million new cases a week
 

 

The WHO said the trajectory of the pandemic is now “growing exponentially” at more than 4.4 million new Covid-19 cases.

Maria Van Kerkhove, the agency’s technical lead for Covid-19, said “we’re in a critical point of the pandemic.”

“This is not the situation we want to be in 16 months into a pandemic where we have proven control measures,” she said.


The World Health Organization said Monday the trajectory of the coronavirus pandemic is now “growing exponentially,” with more than 4.4 million new Covid-19 cases reported over the last week.

Maria Van Kerkhove, the agency’s technical lead for Covid-19, said “we’re in a critical point of the pandemic,” as some countries ease restrictions even as new cases per week are more than eight times higher than a year ago.

“This is not the situation we want to be in 16 months into a pandemic where we have proven control measures. It is the time right now where everyone has to take stock and have a reality check of what we need to be doing,” she said during a press briefing. “Vaccines and vaccinations are coming online, but they aren’t here yet in every part of the world.”

Covid-19 cases climbed by 9% across the globe last week — the seventh consecutive weekly increase — and deaths jumped 5%, she said, asking governments to support their citizens in implementing pandemic safety measures.

Last month, WHO officials warned of a steady rise in Covid-19 cases and deaths, urging people to stick with mask mandates and social distancing rules as the world enters a critical phase of the pandemic.

The virus is “stronger, it’s faster” with the emergence of new variants that spread more easily and are more deadly than the original wild strain of the virus, Dr. Mike Ryan, the head of the WHO’s health emergencies program, said March 31. “We’re all struggling” with and sick of restrictive lockdowns, he said.

India has overtaken Brazil as the second worst-infected country behind the United States after Covid-19 cases continued to surge across India where a double-mutant variant researchers say could be more contagious has emerged and is rapidly spreading.

In the U.S., B.1.1.7, the highly contagious coronavirus variant first identified in the United Kingdom is now the most common strain circulating, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said last week.

Hospitals are also seeing a rise in young people being admitted, she said.

Walensky said the U.S. needs to accelerate its vaccination efforts, which are averaging about 3.1 million shots per day. “We must continue to vaccinate as many Americans as we can each day,” Walensky said, adding it will cause new cases and deaths to decline.

The WHO urged the public and world leaders to continue to practice safety measures, including social distancing, wearing masks, washing hands and avoiding crowded spaces.

Harder to vaccinate the world when our pharma companies aren't just sharing the info to mass produce in other countries. Patents are holding back society. Also doesn't help people think this vaccine is like a bullet proof shield so people loosening defenses. Some these vaccines just mitigate symptoms and don't actually prevent you from catching and spreading virus. Still not getting vaccine until I wait and see how this all plays out, in meantime still masking up and social distancing.

Interesting. But it seems like certain regions are contributing to this.

India has like 1.5 billion people, about 20% of the worlds population and they are doing horrible with Covid. There is so many people there that in certain areas social distancing is almost impossible and there will inevitably be a vaccine shortage.

Brazil is also doing very bad.

Put those 2 countries into the equation and sh*t looks horrible.

You cant just look at averages. As it seems to be very region specific.

Some early findings that were published in the preprint server bioRxiv, which have yet to be peer reviewed, indicate that the variant identified in South Africa, known as 501Y.V2, can evade the antibodies provided by some coronavirus treatments and may reduce the efficacy of the current line of available vaccines.

As expected, everything is opening back up! It was a bad idea to open everything up after basically the elderly and Tier1A workers received vaccinations

masks dont work. thats become more then evident at this point.

also the 6ft social distance guidelines we were given came from a study done in the 1800's. theres been numerous studies that say 3 feet is equally as effective.

youre almost there. youll get it and whats really goin on soon enough.

Nope fu*k a vaccine. I took three of those quick tests. My nephew caught it but with kids it's damn near nothing so he ain't think to mention he wasn't solid. Came around started feeling the same way as last year when I caught it. The next day I felt good got tested anyway all 3 tests came back positive. Oh well fu*k it this ain't bad at all so IDC. Last year for me was worse even tho I had "mild" symptoms. Now I barely have a sore throat, spitting up mucus, and feel just a little off. I'm good tho.

There was a spike in the spring last year too and then a sharp decline that lasted from Mid May to the end of September...ironic, because in the summer everyone was saying fu*k it and were going out and doing their damn thing....

The "experts" have been wrong throughout this whole damn thing and its fair to question everything
