Vaccine does not equal zero covid, warns WHO
“Vaccines do not equal zero Covid. Vaccine and vaccination, by themselves, they will not do the job,” said WHO emergencies director Michael Ryan in a virtual news conference. He added that the vaccine will not be with everyone by early next year. The WHO is concerned that there is a growing perception that the novel and deadly coronavirus pandemic is over, he stated.
Meanwhile, Bahrain said on Friday it has granted emergency use authorisation for the Pfizer or BioNTech Covid-19 vaccine, becoming the second country after Britain to approve it.
