新冠变异病毒德尔塔毒株在全球蔓延

US COVID-19 cases driven by the Delta variant may double to 200,000 a day in the fall, said Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, on Wednesday.
8月4日,美国国家过敏和传染病研究所院长福奇表示,今年秋季,德尔塔毒株在美国引发的新冠肺炎病例可能会暴增到每天20万例。

"What we're seeing, because of this increase in transmissibility, and because we have about 93 million people in this country who are eligible to get vaccinated who don't get vaccinated - that you have a significant pool of vulnerable people," said Fauci.
福奇说:“我们现在的情况是,因为这个毒株的传染性更强,而且我们有9300万符合疫苗接种条件却没有打疫苗的人,导致有很大的一个易感染群体。”

Countries in Southeast Asia are also reporting rising cases. With just 8% of the world's population, the region is reporting almost 15% of all global cases each day.

世卫组织呼吁暂缓接种加强针 将疫苗提供给低收入国家

The World Health Organization is calling for a halt on COVID-19 vaccine boosters until at least the end of September, its head Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Wednesday, as the gap between vaccinations in wealthy and poor countries widens.
随着贫富国家之间的疫苗接种鸿沟不断扩大,世卫组织总干事谭德赛呼吁将新冠疫苗加强针的接种暂缓至9月底以后。

High-income countries administered around 50 doses for every 100 people in May, and that number has since doubled, according to WHO. Low-income countries have only been able to administer 1.5 doses for every 100 people, due to lack of supply.
世卫组织表示,今年5月,高收入国家每100人约接种了50剂,后来这个数字又增加了一倍;而低收入国家由于疫苗供应短缺,每100人仅接种了1.5剂。

"We need an urgent reversal from the majority of vaccines going to high-income countries to the majority going to low-income countries," Tedros said.
谭德赛表示:“我们需要将多数疫苗流向高收入国家的形势紧急扭转为多数疫苗流向低收入国家。”

 

中国新冠疫苗接种超17亿剂次 积极推动新冠疫苗可及性和可负担性

The Chinese mainland has administered more than 1.7 billion doses of novel coronavirus vaccines as of Tuesday, according to the National Health Commission.
国家卫健委表示,截至8月3日,中国大陆新冠疫苗接种剂次已超17亿。

China is working relentlessly to make COVID-19 vaccines an accessible and affordable public good in developing economies, including those in Africa, to push forward the equal distribution of vaccines.
中国一直致力于促进疫苗公平分配,确保新冠疫苗在非洲等发展中国家的可及性和可负担性,让疫苗成为全球公共产品。

China has so far provided more than 750 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines overseas and, over the next four months, will provide 110 million doses to COVAX, the Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday.
8月3日,外交部表示,截至目前,我国已经向海外提供了7.5亿剂新冠疫苗,接下来的4个月,还将向“新冠肺炎疫苗实施计划”提供1.1亿剂疫苗。

【知识点】

2020年10月8日,中国同全球疫苗免疫联盟签署协议,正式加入“新冠肺炎疫苗实施计划(COVAX)”。这是中国秉持人类卫生健康共同体理念(uphold the concept of a shared community of health for all)、履行自身承诺推动疫苗成为全球公共产品(turn COVID-19 vaccines into a global public good)的一个重要举措。

“新冠肺炎疫苗实施计划”由世界卫生组织和全球疫苗免疫联盟、流行病防范创新联盟共同牵头成立,拟于2021年底前向全球提供20亿剂新冠肺炎疫苗(the initial aim is to have 2 billion doses available by the end of 2021),供应给“自费经济体(higher-income self-financing countries)”和“受资助经济体(lower-income funded nations)”。包括我国在内的“自费经济体”需向该计划承诺为本经济体一定比例人口购买疫苗并缴纳预付款,而“受资助经济体”无须缴纳预付款,同时享受该计划补贴。

 

China has shown its kindness to the world by donating 26 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines overseas and had provided more than 500 million doses, as well as bulk vaccine, to over 100 countries, regions and international organizations by the end of July-roughly one-sixth of the world's total COVID-19 vaccine output.
截至2021年7月,我国已对外捐赠疫苗超2600万剂,向100多个国家、地区和国际组织提供了超过5亿剂疫苗和原液,相当于全球新冠疫苗总产量的六分之一。
