Coronavirus vaccines reduce the risk of transmission of the currently dominant coronavirus variant delta by approximately 40 percent.
This was stated on Wednesday by the World Health Organization (WHO), which warned people not to fall into a false idea of safety, the AFP agency reported.
“We are concerned about the false sense of security that the vaccine has ended the pandemic and vaccinated people do not have to follow precautionary measures.Read also Scientists have identified the remains of an American soldier who fell during World War II
According to Tedros, the data suggest that before the arrival of the delta variant, vaccines were able to reduce the risk of coronavirus transmission by 60 percent. However, as the more contagious delta variants spread, the figure dropped to about 40 percent.
The WHO chief therefore called on the vaccinated people to continue to comply with the measures and to try to avoid the infection and its subsequent spread.Read also Covid’s vaccination paradox: Educated people do not trust vaccination. However, they are most supportive of covid vaccination
“If you are vaccinated, you have a much lower chance of developing a severe course (COVID-19 disease) or you die, but you can still become infected and spread the infection,” Tedros said.
Of the 845,000 sequenced samples from the international GISAID database collected over the past 60 days, up to 99.8 percent of the delta variants became dominant in the world due to their greater infectivity and almost completely displaced other variants.
