Over 670 million doses of SARS-CoV-2 vaccines have already been administered worldwide. In Poland, the number of vaccinations has exceeded 6.6 million, of which almost 4.6 million are vaccinations with one dose and 2 million with two doses. WHO estimates that by 2022 everyone will be vaccinated. Especially that 85 vaccines are in the clinical trial phase, and 184 – in the pre-clinical phase. Until then, however, the existing security measures must be applied. When we finish the vaccination program, we will certainly come back to the life we know before the pandemic, according to Dr. Paloma Cuchi, a representative of the WHO in Poland.
“When will the pandemic end? That's the million-dollar question. Of course, you can already see the light in the tunnel. We have vaccinations and they are proceeding at record speed. There are difficulties with distribution, but as we overcome them, we will vaccinate faster. We already know how to prevent Covid-19 and that wearing face masks and washing hands are helping to slow down the epidemic, but there are still many unknowns. We are aware that the virus can mutate. The mutations so far have not made the virus more dangerous, but we see some difficulties in the vaccine production process. Putting this whole puzzle together requires extensive coordination and deep solidarity,” Dr. Paloma Cuchi emphasized.
