GENEVA, Aug 18  — The world must administer widespread anti-flu vaccinations this year to help to ward off the risk of complicating coronavirus infections, World Health Organization senior adviser Bruce Aylward said today.

More than 21.9 million people have been reported to be infected by the novel coronavirus globally and 772,647 have died, according to a Reuters tally.

WHO epidemiologist Maria Van Kerkhove told a briefing in Geneva that studies to date showed that less than 10 per cent of the population has evidence of antibodies against the virus. — Reuters
