WHO Director-General Tedros said that the number of new cases of COVID-19 worldwide continued to decline last week, and the number of new cases worldwide in a week has declined for three consecutive weeks.
Although the number of cases reported by many countries is still increasing, it is still An encouraging piece of news that even if the mutant coronavirus is spreading, the virus can be controlled.
If we continue to use public health measures that have proved to be effective, we can prevent infection and save lives.
Tedros also stressed that almost all countries have seen a decline in the number of new cases in the past year, but because of the rapid opening, people have relaxed their vigilance, causing the virus to re-spread.
With the vaccine, everyone should continue to take precautions to ensure their safety and that of others.
Controlling the spread of the virus can not only save lives, but also reduce the probability of virus mutation and ensure that the vaccine remains effective.
