Even those who have been fully vaccinated are now getting infected with corona. Most of such cases are related to Delta variants. But the WHO (World Health Organization) claims that vaccine shots are saving people from death and falling seriously ill. WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Suman Swaminathan said in a conference on Monday that cases of people getting infected with the delta variant of the vaccine are continuously coming up.
Dr. Swaminathan said that most of the cases of hospitalization are being seen in places where vaccination rate is very low and highly infectious delta variant is spreading rapidly.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 75 percent of hospitalizations and deaths after vaccination are over 65 years of age.
Dr. Swaminathan warned that if vaccinated people have become safe, it does not mean that they cannot transmit the infection. Such people do not show any symptoms and they can easily spread the infection by going among the people.
That’s why WHO urges people to wear masks and maintain social distancing.
