World should not be complacent after COVID-19 vaccine news: WHO

The World Health Organization (WHO) said that “many questions” remained and it was no time for complacency despite receiving encouraging news about COVID-19 vaccines.

“While we continue to receive encouraging news about COVID-19 vaccines and remain cautiously optimistic about the potential for new tools to start to arrive in coming months, right now we are extremely concerned by the surge in cases we are seeing in some countries, particularly in Europe and the Americas,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a news briefing.

Moderna Inc’s experimental vaccine is 94.5% effective in preventing COVID-19, while Pfizer said its vaccine is also more than 90% effective.
