Booster doses are not enough to get out of the pandemic

Booster doses are not enough to get out of the pandemic, a WHO representative points out.

Booster doses are not enough to lift the world out of the pandemic, WHO epidemiologist Maria van Kerkhove told the BBC.

The global crisis “requires a global vaccination”, she said, noting that in low-income countries the percentage of people vaccinated is 3%.

It is a “moral and ethical failure” and resources must be allocated to achieve global vaccine coverage of 70% by July 2022, according to WHO targets.

But in general, in addition to the booster dose, the quoted source mentioned, isolation measures must be maintained, such as masks and spacing, because the appearance of new variants is a constant danger.
