Is the corona virus or flu more lethal? Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), gave the answer to this question. According to Ghebreyesus, the mortality rate of the new type of corona virus (Covid-19) is estimated to be 10 times higher than influenza (influenza).
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), addressed diplomatic mission chiefs at WHO’s headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland.
Reminding that WHO launched the Strategic Preparation and Response Plan on 5 February to support Covid-19 in different countries and regions, Ghebreyesus thanked the member countries for their support.
Ghebreyesus announced that member countries have made a total commitment of $ 800 million so far, some of this amount has reached WHO.
Reminding that WHO has been 100 days since China reported its first Covid-19 incident, Ghebreyesus stated that due to the spread of the virus globally, the countries’ health systems were overloaded and the world economy deteriorated.
Spreading speed is high
In 2002, the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) virus, which also appeared in China, was transmitted to 8,000 people and killed 774 people. However, the rate of transmission and spread of SARS was not so high.
There are those who say that the rate of transmission and spread of coronavirus can be as high as flu.
Scientists have found that coronavirus is not only transmitted from animals, but also from person to person, as previously thought, and estimates that an infected person infects this with 2-3 more.
This spread is tried to be prevented by measures taken in many countries.
However, it is suspected that there are tens of thousands of cases that have not yet been diagnosed in China.
“Covid-19’s death rate is estimated to be 10 times higher than influenza,” said Ghebreyesus, who compared Covid-19 to flu.
Ghebreyesus repeated the call for world leaders to “unity and solidarity”, demanding that Covid-19 not be used in politics at the national and global level.
