CEO of the company World Health Organization (WHO), Tedro Adhanom Ghebreyesus, warned yesterday, “Another Emerging Pathogen have the potential to be more deadly” still exist, so he asked the international community to “prepare” for their possibility new epidemic.
He believes that “when the next pandemic comes (and it will come), we must be prepared to respond decisively, collectively and fairly.” The World Health Organization said that epidemics are far from the only threat facing humanity, but It takes for granted that new pathogens and new epidemics will come, so it urges world leaders to develop strategies to address these challenges.
On the other hand, it highlights the “high mental health toll” of the pandemic. “Many of our staff, like many healthcare workers around the world, have experienced severe stress and burnout“, because “the epidemic has brought us unprecedented challenges,” the doctor added.
In addition, the World Health Organization has warned that the threat of another “emerging variant of covid-19” will lead to “a new wave of disease and death”.
“this Pandemic It throws us off track, but it shows us why the Sustainable Development Goals must continue to be our compass, and why we must achieve them with the same urgency and determination that we have tackled this pandemic,” he stressed explain.
Everyone is advised to wear a mask because the new variant of the COVID-Omicron XBB coronavirus is different, deadly, and not easy to detect correctly.
Symptoms of the new virus COVID-Omicron XBB are as follows:
Only a limited number of other symptoms occur:
Pain in the upper back.
Usually no appetite.
COVID-Omicron XBB is five times more virulent and has a higher mortality rate than the Delta variant.
It takes less time for the condition to reach extreme severity, and sometimes there are no obvious symptoms.
This strain is not found in the nasopharyngeal region and directly affects the lungs within a relatively short period of time.
Several patients diagnosed with Covid-Omicron XBB were classified as afebrile and painless, but X-rays showed mild chest pneumonia.
Nasal swabs are often negative for Covid-Omicron XBB, and cases of false negative nasopharyngeal tests are also increasing.
This means that the virus can spread in the community and directly infect the lungs, causing viral pneumonia, which in turn causes acute respiratory distress.
This explains why Covid-Omicron XBB has become an extremely contagious, highly virulent and deadly virus.
As a precautionary measure, even if everyone is asymptomatic (no coughing or sneezing), avoid going to crowded places, keep a distance of 1.5m even in open spaces, wear a double layer mask, and wash your hands frequently.
It has been warned that this wave of Covid-Omicron XBB is deadlier than the first wave of Covid-19. Therefore, you are advised to be very careful and take some enhanced precautions against the coronavirus.
