世卫组织:2021无法实现群体免疫

文章来源:admin    时间:2021-01-13

  World Health Organization (WHO) chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan said Monday that herd1 immunity2 to coronavirus would not be achieved in 2021, despite the growing availability of vaccines4.   世界卫生安排的首席科学家苏米娅·斯瓦米纳坦周一表明,即便疫苗产值不断添加,也不行能在2021年完成对新冠病毒的集体免疫。   Mitigating5 factors to herd immunity include limited access to vaccines in developing countries, skepticism over vaccination6, and the potential for virus mutations, according to health experts.   A growing number of countries around the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom, Singapore, Germany and other European Union countries, are in the first stages of mass-vaccination campaigns.   Herd immunity occurs when enough people in a population have immunity to an infection so that it prevents the disease from spreading.   "We are not going to achieve any levels of population immunity or herd immunity in 2021," Swaminathan told a briefing, while emphasizing that measures like physical distancing, hand washing and mask wearing continue to be necessary in containing COVID's spread for the rest of the year.   However, Swaminathan commended the "incredible progress" made by vaccine3 researchers to develop several safe and effective vaccines at unprecedented7 speed. Countries are currently administering vaccines developed by BioNTech-Pfizer, Oxford8 University/AstraZeneca and Moderna.   The WHO top scientist called on people to be "a little patient," pointing out that the rollout of vaccines "does take time," as the scale of dose production is in the billions.   "The vaccines are going to come," she said. "They are going to go to all countries ... but meanwhile we mustn't forget that there are measures that work," she added, referring to hygiene9 and social distancing.
