The World Health Organization (WHO) considers that despite the incessant increase in cases around the world, in all countries societies seem to have lowered their guard and « are not doing enough » in the fight against the pandemic.
The high numbers « could be due in a small part to the appearance of variants (more contagious) of the virus, but to a large extent it has happened because we are reducing physical and social distancing », warned the director of Health Emergencies of the WHO, Mike Ryan .
The start of vaccination campaigns in most countries has coincided with the appearance of worrisome, more contagious variants of the coronavirus in numerous places, including South Africa, the United States and the United Kingdom.
WHO experts continue to consider the coronavirus pandemic an international emergency, a status that the body granted it almost a year ago, on January 30, 2020, even before the disease was baptized as COVID-19.
