W.H.O. Cautions Against Countries’ Lifting of Pandemic Measures

The World Health Organization’s director general said it was premature for any country to “surrender” or “declare victory” over the coronavirus, and urged caution about relaxing restrictions too hastily.

We are now starting to see a very worrying increase in disease in most regions of the world. We are concerned that a narrative has taken hold in some countries that because of vaccines and because of Omicron’s high transmissibility and lower severity, preventing transmission is no longer possible and no longer necessary. Nothing could be further from the truth. More transmission means more disease. We are not calling for any country to return to so-called lockdown. But we are calling on all countries to protect their people using every tool in the toolkit — not vaccines alone. It’s premature for any country, either to surrender or to declare victory. This virus is dangerous, and it continues to evolve before our very eyes.
