Pain of the UN chief
According to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, there are 130 countries in the world that have not reached a single dose of the Kovid-19 vaccine. This is huge injustice. During the Security Council meeting, Guterres said – “We are very sad and angry that we could not even give 130 countries a dose of vaccine to deal with the epidemic.” At the same time, there are 10 countries where 75% of the vaccination process has been completed. This shows how unequal the vaccine distribution system is. If we have to overcome the epidemic, then in any case and at any cost, everyone has to provide vaccine.
New trouble for England
In England, two-thirds of the infection has been controlled, but a new problem is emerging here. According to a report by ‘The Guardian’, young people are now coming in the grip of infection in England. It is a matter of concern that these children are also included. Recently Imperial College did a study. It became clear that primary school children are also becoming victims of infection. New variants have emerged in the country, but this has not proved too dangerous. Most of the cases are still facing the old variant.

Hotels ventilation system hazard
Reports prepared by some UK experts claimed that the ventilation system of some hotels in the country is poor and due to these the infection can take dangerous forms. According to the report – some people coming from other countries are being quarantined in the hotels. The ventilation system of these hotels is not good. Because of this, the virus can reach the outside parts through airflow and due to this there is a risk of community transmission. This report has also been submitted to the government.
