"La ricerca IHME - riferisce Christopher Murray, direttore dell'istituto IHME (Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation) che ha messo a punto il metodo usato per il conteggio - mostra che nei primi 2 anni di pandemia quasi 145 milioni di persone in tutto il mondo hanno sofferto di uno dei tre gruppi di sintomi che caratterizzano il Long Covid: affaticamento con dolore fisico e sbalzi d'umore, problemi cognitivi, mancanza di respiro.
“Knowing how many people are affected and for how long is important for health systems and government agencies to develop rehabilitative and support services,” said Christopher Murray, director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, which conducted the research for the WHO.
"What has happened is [people in] the states where they refused to get the vaccine, or were hesitant to get the vaccine, got infected," Dr. Ali Mokdad, an epidemiologist with the University of Washington's Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation in Seattle, told ABC News. "What we are seeing is due to waning immunity, we are going to enter winter with a higher percentage of people who are susceptible."

Un estudio sobre la edad de iniciación del tabaquismo a nivel global elaborado en 2019 por el Instituto de Métricas y Evaluación de la Salud (IHME, por sus siglas en inglés) estima que alrededor del 82% de los fumadores actuales comenzaron a fumar entre los 14 y los 25 años.
The JAMA pediatrics study utilized excess mortality-derived estimates from the WHO, The Economist and the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.

Ali Mokdad, professor of global health at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, said only high-income countries, and the rich in several countries, are able to access the drug at the moment.
Ali Mokdad, an epidemiologist at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington, said his group is predicting a rise in COVID cases, deaths and hospitalizations this fall.
“But the rise in mortality and hospitalization will not be similar to what we have seen before, simply because most people have some kind of immunity against illness,” Mokdad said.
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington built an influential Covid-19 forecast model early on in the pandemic, but will not be doing the same for monkeypox.
"In our mind, this disease is not going to spread into the community as wide as we've seen with Covid," said Ali Mokdad, an epidemiologist and professor of health metrics sciences at IHME.
“COVID is not going to disappear. It's going to stay with us for a long time. And that's what we have seen with similar viruses in the past,” Ali Mokdad, chief strategy officer for population health at the University of Washington, told BuzzFeed News. “This virus is going to keep mutating and could possibly produce an escape variant that could be more severe than what we’re seeing right now."
"Segundo nossa análise, 44,41% das mortes por câncer no mundo podem ser atribuídas a um fator de risco determinado," considera o estudo, publicado na revista Lancet como parte do projeto mundial Global Burden of Disease.
Researchers at the University of Washington’s school of medicine have become the first to work out how risk factors contribute to cancer deaths globally.
“This study illustrates that the burden of cancer remains an important public health challenge that is growing in magnitude around the world,” said Dr Christopher Murray, the director of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington’s school of medicine and a co-senior author of the study.
The study by the State of Global Air Initiative, a collaboration between Boston-based Health Effects Institute (HEI) and Seattle-based Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation’s (IHME) Global Burden of Disease project, is the largest analysis of urban air pollution to date – examining data spanning the years 2010-2019 for 7,239 cities, home to some 2.8 billion people. It is also the first global analysis to compare trends in cities over time.
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, based at the University of Washington, estimates that more than 80% of Americans have contracted COVID-19 at least once.
The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation estimated that in 2019, lead exposure accounted for 900,000 deaths and 21.7 million years of healthy life lost worldwide due to long-term effects on health. The highest burden was in low- and middle-income countries.
According to the Global Burden of Disease, nearly a quarter (24.8 per cent) of all deaths in India is due to CVDs.
