World Health Speaks on Vanquishing the COVID-19 Pandemic
WORLD HEALTH – WHO believes it’s “unrealistic” to finish the COVID-19 pandemic by the end of 2021.
Starting 2020, a lot of countries and territories across the globe were faced with the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. This disease that has infected millions of people across the globe put both health and economy on the line.
The previous reports state that the first cases of coronavirus were recorded in China late 2019. Starting January 2020, several other nations logged cases of the disease.
What undeniably contributed to the spread is the fact that a person may be COVID-19 positive but asymptomatic. Several countries closed their borders in the pursuit to curb the spread of the disease.
Also, community quarantine measures were implemented. Most nations require a quarantine or self-isolation period for those allowed of entry to their country.
COVID-19 spread fast. Even the World Health Organization (WHO) was alarmed by how fast the coronavirus has taken the spotlight in the different countries.
WHO has previously warned nations not to put their guards down early to prevent the spread of the COVID-19. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the World Health recently expressed that it is “unrealistic” to finish the pandemic by the end of 2021.
Undeniably, a lot of people are eager to finally be free from the threats of COVID-19. Based on the report, World Health said that what is possible is to put a stop to hospitalizations, deaths, and incidents related to the pandemic.
According to WHO emergencies director Michael Ryan, the organization focuses on keeping the virus transmission low. It is in line with the pursuit to curb the emergence of new variants of coronavirus.
Also, the WHO official expressed that vaccinating the healthcare workers and those who are most susceptible to the disease will take the fear of the pandemic.
