The world is entering an “era of pandemics,” said a panel of 26 experts from around the world in a report published on the European Commission’s website.
“Today’s efforts to tackle COVID-19 must include investments and response measures that have the greatest potential for sustainable improvement in prevention, including investment in human resources and training, preparedness and response to global threats. health “, said the scientists.
“The possible trajectory for SarsCoV2 is to become endemic, with seasonal outbreaks due to declining natural immunity, insufficient coverage of global vaccines and / or the emergence of new variants that are not controlled by current vaccines,” they added.
According to them, new epidemic waves are possible, especially in countries with low vaccination coverage, so experts warn that “global equality in access to resources is both a moral necessity and a critical need to control pandemics.”
