By Zoila Palma Gonzalez:  Last week, the number of COVID-19 cases rose by 18%, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported.

According to WHO, over 4.1 million new cases were reported around the world.

In addition, COVID-related deaths have increased in 3 regions, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and the Americas, Time reports.

WHO noted that in the Americas, cases rose by 14% and that cases were on the rise in 110 countries, mostly driven by the Omicron variants BA.4 and BA.5.

Director-General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that the pandemic is changing but it is not over.

Tedros called on countries to immunize their most vulnerable populations, including health workers and people over 60.

While more than 1.2 billion COVID-19 vaccines have been administered globally, the average immunization rate in poor countries is about 13%.

Many countries have authorized COVID-19 vaccines for children.

 In Belize, the Ministry of Health and Wellness has rolled out its vaccination plan for primary school children.
