KATHMANDU:- The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that covid has adversely affected health workers. The organization estimates that between 80,000 and 180,000 people worldwide have died from the infection. That number is estimated to have risen between January 2020 and May 2021. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Gehbrias said health workers should be given priority for covid vaccination, the BBC reported.
He also criticized the unfair distribution of vaccines. Earlier, another senior WHO official warned that the epidemic could continue for another year due to a lack of vaccine. There are an estimated 135 million health workers worldwide.
According to data from 119 countries around the world, on average, only two out of five health workers have been vaccinated with covid vaccine, according to Director General Tedros. According to him, less than one in ten health workers in Africa has been fully vaccinated, while eight out of ten people in high-income countries have been vaccinated.
