One million persons have died so far as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, a tragic milestone that must lead to more people being vaccinated against the disease.

This is the word from head of the World Health Organization Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus who further stated that we cannot say we are learning to live with the pandemic when one million persons have died of the disease this year alone.

He says we are two and a half years into the pandemic and have all the tools necessary to prevent these deaths.

Dr Ghebreyesus was speaking during his regular briefing on Thursday from Geneva.

He again urged all governments to step up action to vaccinate all health workers, older persons and others at highest risk, as part of efforts towards inoculating 70% of the global population.

The WHO head said he was pleased to see that some countries with the lowest vaccination rates are now gaining ground, especially in Africa.
