`The more infections there are, the more variants will emerge that are potentially even more dangerous than the Delta variant that is causing havoc today. And the more variants there are, the more likely it is that one of the variants will fight

The Delta variant was first detected in India and has appeared in more than 111 countries.

The head of WHO said that the Covid-19 pandemic is a test for the world.

`There is a question that I am often asked and that people around the world are also asking: When will this pandemic end? In fact, the Covid-19 pandemic has raised many questions for us: About ourselves

`By the time I make these comments, more than 100 people around the world will have died from Covid-19. And by the time the Olympic torch goes out on August 8, more than 100,000 more people will have died,`

Mr. Tedros said he was sure the reason the world could not deal with the Covid-19 pandemic, despite having all the necessary tools, was because of a lack of real political commitments.

`G20 governments must show leadership to ensure the urgent scale-up and deployment of the tools needed to save lives. If they choose this, leading economies

Vaccine targets

Mr. Tedros said that vaccinating 70% of each country’s population would not only help prevent the Covid-19 pandemic but also help restart the global economy.

`Along with the heads of the International Monetary Fund, World Bank and World Trade Organization, I have called for a broad global effort to vaccinate at least 10% of each country’s population

Mr. Tedros said that currently only 1% of the population in low-income countries has received at least one vaccine shot, compared to more than half of the population in developed countries.

According to Mr. Tedros, the world needs 11 billion doses of vaccine to achieve the above goal.

`Most vaccines are developed with public funds. Many companies have pledged to share vaccines, but many of those pledges have yet to be fulfilled,` the WHO chief said.

`If countries can mobilize the power of industrial resources for war, why can’t they do the same to defeat common enemies today?`, Mr. Tedros asked.
