The Covid-19 pandemic isn’t over yet despite high vaccination rates in many countries, the head of the World Health Organization warned Monday, after the CDC told fully vaccinated Americans they can go without masks in most places.
“There is a huge disconnect growing where in some countries with the highest vaccination rates, there appears to be a mindset that the pandemic is over, while others are experiencing huge waves of infections,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said during a news conference from the agency’s Geneva headquarters.
“The pandemic is a long way far from over,” he warned. “It will not be over anywhere until it’s over everywhere.”
