The World Health Organization (WHO) stated on Sunday that the current trajectory of the coronavirus pandemic indicates that the virus will never be completely eradicated. According to a news agency, Melita Vujnovic, the WHO representative in Russia on the Soloviev Live YouTube channel, the virus will continue to spread through the population as an endemic disease.
WHO believes that the coronavirus is on its way to becoming an endemic disease. That means it will never come to an end. We must learn how to treat it and protect ourselves from it.
According to Melita Vujnovic, the most important thing right now is to prevent the infection and reduce the number of people who are vulnerable to it. If this is not done, the variants in the new form will manifest themselves in unexpected ways.
Melita Vujnovic also stated that while the evidence suggests that the Omicron variant is less dangerous than the others, its danger should not be underestimated. Any laxity when it comes to the coronavirus can be overwhelming.
Melita stated that, in addition to vaccination, it is now critical to follow other safety precautions such as wearing a mask and changing it at regular intervals, ventilating the rooms, and avoiding crowds of people in confined spaces.
