Unrealistic to think Covid pandemic will be stopped by end of 2021 : WHO
Director of WHO health program, Michael Ryan on Monday said, it was premature and unrealistic to think the pandemic might have stopped by the end of the year. Vaccination can help to reduce hospitalization and death. It was regrettable that younger and healthier adults in rich countries are being vaccinated against the corona virus before at-risk health workers in developing countries.
For the first time in 7 weeks, the number of Covid cases increased last week, after 6 consecutive weeks of declining numbers. Spike in the cases may be due to relaxing of public health measures, WHO senior advisor said.
