WHO is concerned about the mutation of coronavirus
Although the manufacturers of vaccines against coronavirus claim that their developments work against mutated strains, the World Health Organization is not sure about this.
This, as reported by France 24, said the Director of the WHO Regional Office for Europe Hans Kluge.
вЂњThis is a big question. I am concerned. We must be ready,вЂќ the expert said.
Kluge called on the countries of the world to expand their capabilities for sequencing the genome of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is the causative agent of the coronavirus disease COVID-19.
вЂњThis is a violent reminder that the virus is still taking over man,вЂќ added Hans Kluge.
He also called on the countries of the European region to unite to accelerate the pace of vaccination of the population against the virus, and rival pharmaceutical companies вЂ” to join forces to вЂњdramatically increase production capacity.вЂќ
There is no вЂњsolutionвЂќ or вЂњstrategyвЂќ. We must become better at what we do, and we are getting better, вЂњadded the WHO expert.
Recall that against the background of the emerging mutations of the coronavirus, the United States was forced to revise its national vaccination strategy.
We also wrote that the BioNTech / Pfizer vaccine was 10 times less effective against the вЂњBritishвЂќ strain of coronavirus.
