    (Information contained in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] press release media statement: December 23, 2020)



    Media Statement from CDC Director Robert R. Redfield on Vaccine Milestone


    The United States achieved an early but important milestone today – jurisdictions have now reported that more than 1 million people have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine since administration began 10 days ago. With cases of COVID-19 continuing to surge nationwide, this achievement comes at a critical time and will help to protect those on the frontlines – our healthcare providers treating COVID-19 patients – as well as our most vulnerable: elder individuals living in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. While we celebrate this historic milestone, we also acknowledge the...

    (March 6, 2020) - - Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) published the following WHO Director-General's opening remarks at the media briefing on COVID-19: Good afternoon, and thank you once again for joining us in person and online. I would like to start by acknowledging International Women’s Day this Sunday. This is a moment to remember that around the world, many women cannot access essential health services, and continue to suffer disproportionately from preventable and treatable diseases. But International Women’s Day is an opportunity not only to promote and protect the health of women, but to highlight the vital role they play in promoting and protecting the health of all people. Globally, women make up 70% of the global health workforce, but hold only 25% of senior roles. WHO is committed to promoting gender equality every...

    (March 3, 2020) - - Today, the World Health Organization (WHO) published the following WHO Director-General's opening remarks at the media briefing on COVID-19 - 3 March 2020: Good afternoon, and thank you once again for joining us in person and also online. Today is my birthday, and I’ve been given a very good gift from DRC, from my own continent Africa. We have now had two weeks without a single reported case of Ebola, and there are currently no patients receiving treatment. This is very good news not just for me, but for the whole world – I remember how the whole world was worried about Ebola – and especially for the thousands of health workers who have sacrificed so much in the fight against Ebola, and for making sure we’re where we are. But as one epidemic looks like ending, one front of the fight closing, another is be...

    (February 24, 2020) - - Today (February 24, 2020), the United Nations (UN) published the following Opening Remarks UN Secretary-General António Guterres gave to the Media during a Press Encounter at the World Health Organization: I want first of all to express my enormous gratitude and admiration for the staff of the World Health Organization (WHO). When I visited Beni a few months ago, I could see the courage, the resilience of WHO staff fighting Ebola in the DRC (Democratic Republic of the Congo), living in extremely harsh conditions, risking their lives in a very insecure area and doing everything to serve the Congolese people and to avoid the dramatic impact of that disease, both in the DRC and the risk of propagation. Now here it's a different case. But the same resilience, the same commitment, the same hard work...
