WHO urges countries to keep up Covid testing and surveillance

Several researchers have come up with various interpretations about the immunity provided by the vaccine

The World Health Organization said it is increasingly concerned at the reduction in Covid -19 testing, surveillance and overall monitoring among its member countries. WHO urged countries to keep up Covid-19 testing and surveillance as the viral outbreak remains a global pandemic. 
Since the initial days of the Covid pandemic, the World Health Organization has been constantly presenting guidelines on safety issues and measures for all people. A similar plan has been rolled out on March 30 which will be implemented in 2022.
The plan has been constructed on the basis of how dangerous the virus can be and till which extent it can harm human civilization. While addressing the present people, the Director-General of the World Health Organization Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that throughout the years it was seen that the severity of the disease or the effect of the virus on the human body decreased as vaccines taken by the people have increased their immunity.

In the second case, a case-based study says that a booster dose is necessary for those who are more at risk and the virus causes less severe outbreaks with periodic spikes in transmission as immunity wanes.

A case study by WHO also says that there are chances that the upcoming variants will not be as severe as the past Covid variants were.
WHO continues to promote the goal of vaccinating 70% of the world against Covid with a focus on the most vulnerable. A similar report even acknowledges that the current vaccines are providing less effective than hoped. As of the end of March 2022, more than 11 billion doses of Covid-19 have been vaccinated till date. 36% of the global population is yet to receive the a first dose.
