The WHO named unvaccinated people the main distributor of COVID-19
Today, unvaccinated citizens remain the main distributor of coronavirus in the world. This was announced by the European Bureau of the World Health Organization (WHO), RIA Novosti reports.
The organization once again called on people to undergo a full cycle of vaccination against COVID-19. “This is especially important for priority groups, such as people aged 60 years and older, as well as people with weakened immunity,” – emphasized in the bureau.
WHO drew attention to the effectiveness of most preventive measures, such as like wearing a face shield and regularly ventilating the premises. Maintaining social distancing, washing hands and testing for symptoms were also cited as important. The organization stressed that the joint application of these measures will help in the fight against the pandemic.
Earlier, WHO Director General Tedros Adan Ghebreyesus called the situation with the global distribution of coronavirus vaccines a “shocking imbalance”. “In total, more than 7.3 billion doses of the vaccine have been used in the world, but about 70 percent of this amount went to only 10 countries,” he said. The head of the organization also noted that about forty percent of people in the world are vaccinated, but only six percent in Africa.
