There is a real threat of a more dangerous strain of coronavirus against which existing vaccines will be powerless, said the head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. The head of the WHO also warned that the COVID-19 pandemic is not over yet.
WHO is concerned, in particular, about the rise in deaths from the virus in Africa and the Western Pacific region. In the United States, both deaths from COVID-19 and morbidity are increasing. “It is too early to say that the pandemic is over. It has not ended,” said Mr. Ghebreyesus at the Globsek security conference.
According to the head of WHO, "it is difficult to predict how the virus will evolve." “We know for sure that future options will have to be more contagious than existing options in order to get the better of them,” said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
