وقال Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus During a press conference in Geneva a few days before birthday: “No country, any country, can get through the epidemic thanks to booster doses, and booster doses are not a green light to celebrate (victory over the epidemic) as we previously expected.”

He added, “Indiscriminate promotion programs may prolong the epidemic rather than put an end to it, by transferring available vaccines to countries with a high vaccination rate, which gives the virus the possibility of spreading and transforming in a larger form.”

He continued, “It is important to remember that the vast majority of hospitalizations and deaths are due to people who did not receive the vaccine and not to people who did not receive the booster dose, and we must be very clear that vaccines remain effective against the delta mutant as well as Omicron.”

The expert committee reported health organization Concerned with vaccination policy, that at least 126 countries have given instructions that a booster dose or an additional vaccine (for children, for example) must be given, and 120 of these countries have started campaigns in this regard.

The committee added in a report issued Wednesday afternoon that the majority of these countries are either rich or middle-income, while “no poor country has yet to adopt the booster dose programme.”

In its conclusions, it stressed that “immunization efforts must continue to focus on reducing (the number) of deaths and the most severe cases and protecting the health system.”

Experts stressed that “public health and social measures remain an essential component of the strategy to prevent Covid-19, especially in light of the mutated Omicron,” which was confirmed by Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, in charge of epidemic management at the World Health Organization, during the press conference.

Van Kerkhove pointed out that everyone should assume their responsibilities to prevent the virus from continuing to spread, while acknowledging the difficulty of this.

“We have asked people to be careful, we have asked governments to be careful,” she said.

“I hope more people will seriously consider what they have to do in the environment in which they live and make the right decisions in their favour,” she said, noting that she herself had revised her plans for the end-of-year holidays.

On the other hand, Van Kerkhove stated that there is not yet enough data to allow the conclusion that the omicron mutant actually causes less dangerous forms of Covid-19, as some studies indicate.

She said: “We do not have the full picture, and it is still too early to conclude that Omicron less dangerous than delta or more dangerous.
