WHO warns about risk of wasting opportunity to control Covid-19

Geneva, Feb 14 (Prensa Latina) The Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus on Monday warned of the risk of wasting the opportunity to control SARS-CoV-2 in 2022.

“In some countries, high vaccination coverage, combined with the lower severity of the Omicron variant, is fueling the false idea the pandemic is over,” Mr. Ghebreyesus stated, while citing the low immunization rates and poor diagnostic testing rates in other nations are creating ideal conditions for new strains to emerge, Mr. Ghebreyesus added during the Covid-19 Global Action Meeting.

We can control Covid-19 this year, but we run the risk of wasting such an opportunity, Mr. Adhanom stressed, recalling that as many as 116 nations are not currently reaching the goal of vaccinating 70% of the population worldwide for mid-2022.

WHO described three demands to deal with Covid-19: 70% of global population get vaccinated, all nations contribute to funding ACT Accelerator collaborative initiative, and to support models such as mRNA Technology Transfer Center in South Africa.
