There is no time for the world to relax its fight against the coronavirus, according to the so-called ‘experts’ at the World Health Organization and in the United States.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus warned against making a “monumental error” by assuming the threat of coronavirus is passed, as White House Chief Medical Advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci joined him in declaring that the globe cannot “declare victory prematurely,” according to UPI.
Fauci’s warning against any relaxation reprises a declaration he made in April for the public to get vaccinated and continue wearing masks, as Breitbart News reported.
Now Fauci has Tedros’ support, who said that while the UN agency is “very encouraged” that cases and deaths are “continuing to decline globally,” it would be “a monumental error” for any country to believe the threat has gone.
He urged all member countries to remain vigilant in the face of new viral variants and to support a new pandemic preparedness treaty that would improve early warnings of potential global health threats, promote stockpiling and production of pandemic supplies, and “allow for equitable access to vaccines, tests, and treatments.”
For his part, Fauci on Monday told the Guardian despite new U.S. cases falling to the lowest levels in 12 months, “We don’t want to declare victory prematurely because we still have a ways to go.
“As long as there is some degree of activity throughout the world, there’s always a danger of variants emerging and diminishing somewhat the effectiveness of our vaccines,” he said.
On Memorial Day in the United States, which marks the traditional start of the summer months, daily new cases had fallen to around 20,000 — half of what they were at the start of the month — as the number of U.S. vaccinations reached nearly 295 million.
