JoeBiden·This year, we’ve painfully learned the cost of being unprepared for a pandemic. If we aren’t investing with our partners around the world, we’re undermining our ability to defeat COVID-19 and leaving ourselves vulnerable to the next deadly epidemic.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr @RobertKennedyJr·Agreed! As reports surfaced Wednesday of yet another healthcare worker who suffered a severe allergic reaction to #Pfizer’s #COVID#vaccine, it’s time the #FDA and #Fauci explain what they plan to do about it. #TheDefender
World Health Organization warned on Monday, last press briefing of the year, Dr Mike Ryan, head of the WHO Emergencies Program, said the coronavirus pandemic has spread around the world extremely quickly and affected every corner of the planet.
“But this is not necessarily the big one,” he added, “The [COVID-19] virus is very transmissible and it kills people, yet its current fatality is reasonably low in comparison to other emerging diseases. So, this is a wake-up call.”
The doctor stressed on the need for countries to be equipped to deal with future pandemics.
“If there is one thing we need to take from this pandemic, with all of the tragedy and loss, it is that we need to get our act together. We need to get ready for something which may be even more severe in the future.”
