The World Health Organization has warned member countries about the increase in respiratory diseases and the new subvariant JN.1 of Corona. WHO has said that viruses are changing their form. In such a situation, all member countries should maintain strong surveillance so that the spread of diseases can be prevented. WHO has also shared a video on social media of Maria Van Kerkhove, the organization's technical lead on Covid-19. In this video, Kerkhov has explained the reasons for the spread of respiratory diseases and has also given information about what precautions need to be taken to prevent them.

 

Governments need to keep a close watch

Maria Van Kerkhove also wrote in a post shared on social media that respiratory diseases are continuously increasing in the world. These include coronavirus, flu, rhinovirus, mycoplasma pneumonia, and other diseases. SARS-CoV-2 is constantly changing itself. Corona's subvariant JN.1 is also spreading. Kerkhove said there are several factors contributing to the spread of respiratory illnesses, one of which is the current holiday season, with families gathering and large numbers of people traveling. In such a situation, governments need to keep a close watch.

 

 

Kerkhove said that people spend more time indoors during the winter season. In such a situation, if there is a lack of ventilation in the house, then the risk of spreading the disease increases. Let us tell you that these days there are going to be Christmas holidays in Western countries. This is the reason why there is a possibility of spread of corona or other respiratory diseases. He said that the coronavirus is spreading and currently 68 percent of corona cases are due to subvariant JN.1. The World Health Organization has also appealed to the member countries to implement rules related to masks and social distancing and maintain strict monitoring.
