Vaccine Alone Won’t End COVID-19 Pandemic – WHO

Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero

The head of the World Health Organization said Monday that an immunization would not without help from anyone else stop the Covid pandemic.

The pandemic is seething a very long time after it broke out, with diseases taking off past 54 million and asserting more than 1.3 million lives.

“An immunization will supplement different devices we have, not supplant them,” chief general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said. “An antibody on its own won’t end the pandemic.”

The WHO’s figures for Saturday demonstrated that 660,905 Covid cases were accounted for to the UN wellbeing organization, setting another high water mark.

That number, and the 645,410 registered on Friday, surpassed the previous daily record high of 614,013 recorded on November 7.

Tedros said that supplies of the vaccine would initially be restricted, with “health workers, older people and other at-risk populations (to) be prioritised. That will hopefully reduce the number of deaths and enable the health systems to cope.”

But he warned: “That will still leave the virus with a lot of room to move. Surveillance will need to continue, people will still need to be tested, isolated and cared for, contacts will still need to be traced… and individuals will still need to be cared for.”
