Index – Tech-Science – Rabies has been renamed due to racism

The Director-General of the United Nations Health Organization said in a statement on Wednesday that the mechanism for distributing smallpox vaccination will be based on the principle of justice. The smallpox vaccination has also been shown to be 85 percent effective against smallpox. They will try to distribute the available quantity among the countries of the world as needed.

At the same time, Hans Kluge, the regional director for Europe at the World Health Organization, expressed concern that wealthier countries have started buying available stocks without taking into account the needs of Africa in the fight against smallpox, from which the virus is likely to spread. The regional director has warned governments not to “repeat the mistakes of the coronavirus pandemic” in treating smallpox, with only 17 percent of the population in poor countries having received a dose of the coronavirus vaccine, the Associated Press reported.

The focus of the virus remains in Europe, with more than 1,500 cases recorded in 25 countries, which is 85% of all cases identified worldwide.

Kluge emphasized. While the European regional director acknowledged the inequality of resources between the richer and poorer “southern hemisphere” countries, he did not rule out head smallpox – such as Britain, where most cases have been identified outside Africa so far.

Developed countries can do better

Many health experts have complained that the fight against the virus is again focused on more developed and wealthier countries, while in Africa, says François Ballou, an infectious disease expert at University College London (UCL), “the virus is having an effect of an even uglier scale that has claimed human lives”. “Whatever vaccination program there is in Europe will not solve the problem,” Blox said.

Smallpox has been endemic to many countries on the African continent for decades, with the virus killing 72 people in this region alone this year, and 1,500 suspected cases are currently being treated. Ahmed Oguil, acting director of the African Center for Epidemiology (Africa CDC), said the vaccination campaign must start in Africa.

Folly has been renamed

The World Health Organization plans to rename a disease called smallpox due to stigma and racism. The Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, announced, Tuesday, that the body is working to rename the virus as the number of diseases increases worldwide.

WHO is also working with partners and experts around the world to rename monkeypox virus and disease

Gebresus said.

The decision was made a week after more than thirty international scientists said there was an urgent need for non-discriminatory classification and stigmatization of the virus, with the media and some scholars trying to link the current global outbreak to Africa, West Africa or Nigeria.

For this reason, the WHO website advises the press not to use images of Africans in articles about epidemics in Europe. Sky News.
