WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adnam Ghebreyesus said that the corona epidemic is over and those who were vaccinated were expected not to be infected with the corona virus. But it says it is wrong. Cases of Kovid-19 are increasing across Europe. People were asked to wear masks and follow physical distancing, regardless of vaccination. Vaccines can save lives. The WHO chief said this would only reduce the risk of serious illness and death. “Even if you have been vaccinated, you should continue to take precautions,” he said. Tedros said, wearing a mask, maintaining physical distance, not being in groups, not going out unless necessary and keeping the interior of the house well ventilated.
“We are concerned about the false sense of security that comes with getting through the Covid-19 pandemic. Vaccines can save lives, but they do not completely prevent corona. Tedros Adnam Ghebreyesus tweeted. The WHO is holding an emergency meeting this Friday to discuss the rapidly growing Kovid-19 variant in Botswana, South Africa. Earlier, British media had reported that British scientists had warned of 32 variants of the corona virus strain in Botswana. The Russian News Agency reports that the strain Spike has more mutations in the protein than all other COVID-19 variants. The South African National Institute of Infectious Diseases has also confirmed the discovery of a new species in South Africa.
India is on high alert as the cases of corona increase abroad. It has decided to conduct rigorous screening and testing of travelers from Europe and Africa. Union Health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan has written a letter to the concerned states and union territories.
We are concerned about the false sense of security that vaccines have eliminated #COVID-19 global pandemic. Vaccines save lives, but they do not completely prevent transmission. So please be careful and:
