The World Health Organization’s top emergency expert said Thursday that the introduction of a COVID-19 vaccine should allow the world to gain progressive control over the disease next year.
“Life as we knew it, I think it is very, very possible but we will have to continue with hygiene, physical distancing. Vaccines do not equal zero COVID. Adding vaccines to our current measures will allow us to really flatten the curve, avoid roadblocks and gain progressive control over the disease, ”Mike Ryan told RTE television in his native Ireland.
“We must be absolutely aware that we must reduce the possibility that we can infect another person simply by carefully organizing households around the Christmas holidays. The usual in Ireland of 15 people in the kitchen peeling potatoes and basting turkeys is not what we should be doing. “
