December 12 Experts from the World Health Organization said on the 11th that from the epidemiological point of view, the global pandemic situation is still very unstable.
Although the coronavirus vaccine brings hope to people, other anti-pandemic measures are still indispensable.
Michael Ryan, Executive Director of the WHO Emergency Project, said at a press conference held in Geneva on the same day that some countries still face a very disadvantage in controlling the incidence and mortality rate of the novel coronavirus; for most countries currently controlled at a lower pandemic level, the risk of a re-emergence of the pandemic still exists. .
He stressed that it is difficult for people to achieve full social isolation at the end of the year holiday.
In the coming period, countries should take care to guard against the risk of large-scale community transmission of COVID-19.
He said that although the gradual introduction of the coronavirus vaccine brings hope, the emergence of the vaccine does not represent zero infection, and the impact of the vaccine on the pandemic situation will not appear until the proportion of vaccinated people in the population reaches a certain level.
Therefore, the fight against the pandemic still needs comprehensive policies, and relevant parties should continue to strengthen virus detection and provide more and better coronavirus treatments.
