The WHO Chief has said that the lack in collecting the covid samples shows that we are neglecting the situation. More than 1 billion people have still not received the covid vaccine. However, there has been a significant decrease in the death rates since March and there has also been a decrease in the cases of the new covid variant. Despite all this the covid situation has not been simplified in many places, even after 60% of the world population has been vaccinated.
