After a recent spike in cases was reported worldwide, WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris said on Friday that the pandemic is “not over”.
Earlier, public health experts presumed that the pandemic might come to an end this year, but its end would only depend upon the supply of the vaccination rates worldwide.
Even though the number of cases worldwide was declining for a month, last week saw a surprising increase in transmissions internationally. “We are definitely in the middle of the pandemic,” Harris said.
