WHO Advises Fully Vaccinated People
to Continue Wearing Face Masks.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has
urged people to continue practicing COVID-19 safety
measures regardless of their vaccination status. .
This includes wearing face masks, practicing social distancing,
maintaining proper hygiene and being mindful of ventilation. .
This differs from guidance offered in a number of
countries, including the United States, that encourages
vaccinated individuals to shed their face masks. .
Dr. Mariangela Simao, an assistant
director-general for the WHO, stressed
that vaccinated people “still need
to protect themselves.”.
People cannot feel safe just because they
had the two doses … Vaccine alone won’t stop
community transmission … People need to
continue to use masks consistently, be in
ventilated spaces, hand hygiene ... the
physical distance, avoid crowding, Dr. Mariangela Simao, via CNBC.
The WHO’s call for fully vaccinated people to
“play it safe” comes as the highly contagious delta variant
continues to spread rapidly across the globe. .
According to ‘The Wall Street Journal,’ half
of adults infected with the delta variant in Israel
had received both doses of the Pfizer vaccine. .
WHO officials say the variant is in at least 92 countries
now and will “pick off” the most vulnerable people. .
It’s more efficient in the way it transmits
between humans and it will eventually find those
vulnerable individuals who will become severely ill,
have to be hospitalized and potentially die, Dr. Mike Ryan, Executive Director of
WHO’s Health Emergencies Program
