Vaccine alone won’t end COVID pandemic, WHO boss warns

1 Mins read

The head of the World Health Organization said Monday that a vaccine would not by itself stop the coronavirus pandemic.

The pandemic is raging months after it broke out, with infections soaring past 54 million and claiming more than 1.3 million lives. “A vaccine will complement the other tools we have, not replace them,” director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said. “A vaccine on its own will not end the pandemic.”

The WHO’s figures for Saturday showed that 660,905 coronavirus cases were reported to the United Nations health agency, setting a new high watermark.

Tedros said supplies of the vaccine would initially be restricted, with “health workers, older people and other at-risk populations being prioritized. 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.”

Should you notice any strange and unusual symptoms in your body system, or would you like to speak with a doctor concerning any health issues, at the comfort of you home or office?
