Covid-19 : WHO says booster doses will not end pandemic
The Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) warned Wednesday the 22 December 2021, that vaccine booster campaigns against Covid-19 were not a miracle solution, and even risked accelerating mutations in the virus. Covid-19 : WHO says booster doses will not end pandemic.
While the Omicron variant is gaining ground and causing concern around the world, WHO chief warned that booster doses would not be enough to get out of the pandemic.
No country will be able to get out of the pandemic with a booster dose. Reminders are not a green light to celebrate as planned”, said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director General of the’World Health Organization (WHO).
Brief, vaccines would be less effective against this variant.
Prolongation of the pandemic
Indiscriminate recall programs are likely to prolong the pandemic, rather than ending it. Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) pointed out that divert available doses to countries that already have high vaccination rates, thus giving the virus more opportunities to spread and mutate.
Ending vaccine inequity
WHO ’s not against booster doses. « We are against vaccine inequity", said Dr. Tedros. “It's a question of prioritization.".
He insisted that giving booster doses to groups at low risk of serious illness or death simply endangers the lives of high-risk groups who are still waiting for their first dose..
He thus stressed that 41 countries have still not been able to vaccinate 10 % of their population and 98 countries have not reached the 40 %.
“If we end inequity, we end the pandemic. If we allow inequity to continue, we are allowing the pandemic to move forward”, he insisted.
