The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adanom Ghebreyesus, believes that a strain of coronavirus may appear that will be more dangerous than the delta variant. In his opinion, the world is not coping with the pandemic. To win, you need to vaccinate 70% of the population of each country.
“A pandemic is a test. And the world can’t handle it. <...> Other options are emerging that are even potentially more dangerous than the “delta” option, which is now destructive. And the more options, the more likely one of them will bypass the vaccine. And so we will have to start everything from the beginning, ”said Mr. Ghebreyesus at the session of the International Olympic Committee (IOC).
According to the head of WHO, the reason for the pandemic is the absence of real political commitment. He believes the world’s leading economies can bring the pandemic under control if they share the vaccine and create incentives to scale up drug production. “Everyone knows that investing in covid is just a fraction of what is being invested in killing people,” added Mr. Gebreyesus.
Last week, the head of the WHO announced that the world is in the early stages of a new wave of the coronavirus pandemic. WHO calls for abandoning revaccination. The organization believes that rich countries should think about poor countries where they cannot even organize primary vaccinations for health workers.
