The world is still in the grip of the coronavirus (Kovid-19), which entered our lives in the last days of 2019.
The virus, which has been in our lives for about 2 years, cost the lives of close to 5 million people. While the coronavirus epidemic is not over yet, the world is preparing for the Flu epidemic.
Experts have been warning about ‘Twimdemic’ (double pandemic) for a while. A new one of these warnings came from England.
According to the news in the British Guardian newspaper, Dr Jenny Harrie, head of the British Health Security Agency, stated that the flu and Kovid-19 can target people at the same time.
According to Harries, people who catch both the flu and Covid-19 at the same time this winter are twice as likely to die than those who have coronavirus alone.
Underlining that the UK is facing an ‘uncertain barracks’, Harries emphasized that the solution is a vaccine. The scientist stated that both coronavirus and flu vaccines should be taken.
Similar concerns were expressed last year, and it was warned that the two viruses could cause the epidemic to become more severe.
However, there was no fear, and there was no significant increase in the world population. Experts have made frequent calls to ‘get vaccinated’ this year in order to survive the ‘double pandemic’ period without any damage.
On the other hand, the number of coronavirus cases worldwide increased to 237 million 327 thousand, the number of those who lost their lives to 4 million 844 thousand and the number of those who recovered increased to 214 million 455 thousand.
The number of cases exceeded 44 million 932 thousand in the USA, 33 million 914 thousand in India, 21 million 517 thousand in Brazil and 8 million 46 thousand in England.
