Unvaccinated people are the main contributor to COVID-19 in the world. About it “RIA News” reported by the European Office of the World Health Organization (WHO).
“Unvaccinated people are the main spread of the virus. We urge everyone who is eligible to be vaccinated to take advantage of this opportunity <...> This is especially important for priority groups such as people aged 60 and over, as well as people with weakened immunity, ”the bureau said.
The source added that the wearing of masks, hand and respiratory hygiene, physical distancing and ventilation of the premises, according to most studies, are also effective preventive measures. In addition, the WHO recalled that regular testing and tracing contacts with patients “provide maximum protection of society from the virus.”
