The head of the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Gao Fu said that humanity will surely face a new virus in the future. At the international forum of science and technology in society, he expressed confidence, he proposed the principle of interaction in order to prepare countermeasures. This was reported by RIA Novosti.
According to him, today the world is faced not only with a pandemic of coronavirus infection, but also with “infodemia, when relevant information and misinformation are intertwined.”
The scientist noted that in the future the world will surely face the so-called “X virus”, the characteristics of which are currently unknown to anyone. It can occur anywhere and at any time, the specialist added.
To work on the solution, Gao Fu proposed the “principle of four Cs”: cooperation, competition, communication, and finally, coordination, sometimes with a third party (coordination).
On August 18, World Health Organization (WHO) researcher Sumya Swaminathan said vaccination helps prevent severe illness or death when infected with the Indian strain of COVID-19. The organization noted that in regions with a high percentage of infection with the “delta” variant of the coronavirus, the unvaccinated population suffers more.
