The World Health Organization (WHO) has rejected the report, citing the organization, warning of 50,000 deaths due to corona virus in India by April 15. WHO has claimed this claim being made in a video. WHO South-East Asia wrote on Twitter denying the claim, “In a video it is being claimed that the WHO has warned that Kovid-19 may result in 50,000 deaths in India by 15 April. This is fake news. The WHO has not issued any such warning. “
On Tuesday, 96,982 new cases of corona virus were reported in India and 446 people died. After the arrival of new cases, the number of active cases in the country has increased to 7,88,223. At the same time, 1,65,547 people have died due to corona infection in the country. New cases of infection had increased from 20,000 in just 25 days to one lakh on Monday. The total number of corona virus infections in the country has been 1,26,86,049.
Earlier in February, the WHO thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for supporting the ‘Kovacs’ program to provide Kovid-19 vaccine to developing countries. WHO Director General Tedros Adnom Ghebreyes said in a tweet, “Thank you to India and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for supporting the vaccination program.” Your commitment to the Kovacs program and to share the dose of the Kovid-19 vaccine has helped to start vaccination of their health workers and others with priority groups in more than 60 countries. The example you have presented, I hope other countries will also follow it.
