The world has recorded 110,793,571 cases of nCoV infection, of which 2,450,330 people have died, an increase of 398,350 and 11,474 cases respectively.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said in a press conference that the organization will issue a new statement focusing on global vaccine equity.

The declaration, which Tedros said has received support from hundreds of organizations and thousands of people, calls for action from several groups that have signed it.

Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus spoke in Geneva in July 2020.

Actions include asking political leaders to increase contributions to COVAX, the program designed to ensure fair and equitable access to vaccines for every country in the world, and to share vaccines by equal shares.

`Vaccine equity is especially important for disadvantaged and vulnerable groups as well as small island nations such as those in the Pacific or Caribbean that, due to their small populations, may miss out on vaccines because they have less capacity to

The US, the largest epidemic region in the world, recorded an additional 58,523 cases of infection and 2,202 deaths, bringing the total to 28,512,345 and 504,750 respectively.

Covid-19 statistics across the United States are reflecting increasingly positive trends.

California, one of the hardest hit states, also reported the lowest number of new daily nCoV infections since early November 2020.

This is said to be the result of many factors, including strengthening epidemic prevention measures, tens of millions of people who have been infected with a certain level of natural immunity, and Covid-19 vaccination.

India, the second largest epidemic area in the world, reported an additional 12,540 cases of infection and 83 deaths, bringing the total number of people infected and dead from nCoV to 10,962,086 and 156,121 respectively.

The Indian government, the country with the world’s largest vaccine production capacity, said yesterday that it will increase the number of Covid-19 vaccination sites 5 times, after injecting nearly 9 million doses in a month.

60% of India’s nearly 10 million healthcare workers have been vaccinated since the vaccination campaign launched on January 16.

Brazil, the third largest epidemic area in the world, recorded an additional 1,279 deaths, bringing the total number of deaths to 243,457.

Hope in the country’s Covid-19 vaccine is giving way to disappointment, as the government’s vaccination campaign is as chaotic as its response to the pandemic over the past year.

Vaccine shortages have forced some key populous areas to temporarily suspend vaccinations, including the city of Rio de Janeiro.

England, the 5th largest epidemic area in the world, recorded an additional 12,057 cases of infection and 454 deaths, bringing the total number of cases and deaths to 4,083,242 and 119,387 respectively.

Statistics show that more than 16 million people have received the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine more than two months after the launch of the vaccination program.

France, the world’s sixth largest epidemic area, recorded an additional 22,501 cases of infection and 271 deaths, bringing the total number of cases and deaths to 3,536,648 and 83,393 respectively.

The French Ministry of Health said more than 3.16 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine have been injected.

In Southeast Asia, Indonesia is the largest epidemic area in the region with 1,252,685 cases, an increase of 9,039, of which 33,969 people died, an increase of 181. However, experts say that the actual number of infections in Indonesia may be

Indonesia on February 17 launched its second mass vaccination campaign, focusing on people who have a lot of contact with the public such as market traders, teachers, police, civil servants and people over 60 years old.

Previously, in the first phase focusing on healthcare workers, 1.1 million people were vaccinated.

The country of nearly 270 million people plans to vaccinate more than 180 million people, but analysts estimate this could take several years.

The Philippines, the second largest epidemic area in Southeast Asia, recorded 555,163 cases of infection and 11,673 deaths, an increase of 1,744 and 96 cases respectively.

From being one of Asia’s fastest-growing countries before the pandemic, the Philippines suffered its worst economic contraction in 2020, as strict lockdowns forced businesses to close and pushed millions of people out of business.

Due to the emergence of a more contagious variant of nCoV from the UK in the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte decided at the end of January to re-impose the ban on children 10-14 years old from leaving home, despite concerns that this would damage the economy.
