Variables being propagated
Dr. Maria confirmed that “the delta variable will not be the last variable of concern, as there are other variables in the process of spreading,” noting that achieving a qualitative leap to eliminate the spread of the virus and its variants requires concerted efforts to implement the plan to combat the Corona virus.

– Dealing with human gatherings and social events appropriately
Repair of ventilation systems in public and private buildings
Constant communication between stakeholders around the world
Dr. Maria explained that efforts should not only be limited to improving systems of monitoring, tracking and scrambling to prepare for vaccination campaigns, but that measures should also include making tests and analyzes available for detection of the virus widely and efficiently so that the sites of the spread of the virus are identified and that proper handling is ensured. Adequate preparation and equipment to accommodate any crowded gatherings or events, or at least to be postponed.
