The second year of the coronavirus pandemic could claim far more lives than the first one. This was stated by the Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Ghebreyesus, the press service of the WHO reports.

"Covid-19 has already cost more than 3.3 million lives and we’re on track for the second year of this pandemic to be far more deadly than the first," he said.

Ghebreyesus noted that saving lives and livelihoods with a combination of public health measures and vaccination – not one or the other - is the only way out of the pandemic.

Meanwhile, physical activity decreases the risk of a severe form of Covid-19 infection as Chief Sanitary Doctor of Ukraine Viktor Lyashko reported.

According to him, people who are exercising can get through the coronavirus easier. It is necessary to spend only 150 minutes per week on physical activity. Lyashko noted that such data is published in the recent British scientific sports medicine magazine.

“The proven fact is that the physical activity decreases risk to get through Covid-19 in severe form. Only 150 minutes of exercises per week can help to avoid unfavorable consequences after the coronavirus,” Lyashko said.
