Impossible to end emergency status due to new wave of Covid: WHO

Sudden change in zero Covid policy could result in more than one million deaths in China in 2023, experts

Experts at the World Health Organization (WHO) and several leading scientists have said that due to the devastating wave of Covid-19 in China it seemed impossible to end the status of a global emergency soon.

Experts expressed this opinion when the zero Covid policy was abolished recently after public protests from China. Experts have also expressed concern that the sudden change in the zero Covid policy could result in more than one million deaths in China in 2023 as a result of the disease.

According to the experts, China’s zero Covid policy helped keep new cases and deaths low in the country of 1.4 billion people but the easing of restrictions also changed the global scenario.

In most countries of the world, Covid restrictions were lifted in 2022 as the number of cases decreased significantly.

Recommendations regarding the emergency alert level will be made by the WHO committee at the end of January 2023. On December 20, Five Covid deaths were reported in China while no deaths were reported on December 21.
