WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION: CORONAVIRUS VACCINE NOT A 'MAGIC WAND'


20/11/2020




Selin ATAY-TDO- “If the mask use rate had reached levels of up to 95 percent, there would have been no need for lockdowns,” said Hans Kluge, World Health Organization Regional Director for Europe,  stressing that the coronavirus vaccine would not be a “magic wand."

Hans Kluge said in Copenhagen, the Danish capital, that the number of deaths from coronavirus in Europe has reached serious heights. In the last two weeks, 1 person died every 17 seconds in Europe from coronavirus-related causes, Kluge said.

Announcing that 29 thousand people have died in Europe in the last two weeks alone, Kluge said that Europe, along with the United States, has again become the epicenter of the coronavirus epidemic.

"These are not magic wands, because we know that supply will be limited, especially in the first phase "Kluge said about the vaccine studies developed against coronavirus. He also noted that the WHO is in contact with Russia and has learned the details of a vaccine called Sputnik V that has been developed.

"There is light at the end of the tunnel, but we have a very difficult 6 months ahead of us,” Hans Kluge said in a statement on countries' fight against the coronavirus. Kluge also noted that lockdowns should be gradually lifted.

"I am of the opinion that curfews can be avoided, quarantines are a measure of last resort. The use of a mask is by no means a panacea, and it should be used in combination with other measures. However, if mask use reaches 95 percent, quarantine will not be necessary. Lockdowns should be gradually lifted. We have seen the negative effect that occurs if this is done too quickly”

Kluge argued that elementary schools should be kept open, noting that the spread of coronavirus was not caused by children and adolescents.
