WHO believes that the world has passed more than half of the way to combat coronavirus

If we compare the path of combating coronavirus with a marathon, then humanity will soon cover 60% of the distance, said Sumya Swaminathan, Chief Researcher of the World Health Organization (WHO), answering a question from a Swiss journalist. This is reported by the publication SonntagsBlick.

“It would be premature to say that we will soon reach the finish line, this is not so,” the expert stated, noting that there are still many obstacles ahead and unexpected turns are possible.

Among these risks, Swaminathan named new mutations of the coronavirus infection. According to her, the risk of developing dangerous strains of the virus is especially high where there is a low level of immunization. For example, in Africa, she said, only 4% of the population is vaccinated against COVID-19.

As the website kp.ru previously wrote, the infectious disease doctor Yevgeny Timakov predicted that the coronavirus pandemic would persist for at least a year.
