World Health Organization urges fully vaccinated people to wear masks due to delta variant of COVID-19

Posted: Monday, June 28, 2021. 9:52 am CST.

By Zoila Palma: The World Health Organization (WHO) is urging fully vaccinated people to wear their face masks due to the rapid spread of the delta variant of COVID-19.

Health experts around the world are concerned about the rapid increase of cases of the delta variant of COVID-19 being reported.

WHO officials called on the public to protect themselves even if they have been fully vaccinated.

“Vaccine alone won’t stop community transmission. People need to continue to use masks consistently, be in ventilated spaces, hand hygiene … the physical distance, avoid crowding. This still continues to be extremely important, even if you’re vaccinated when you have a community transmission ongoing,” Dr. Mariangela Simao, the assistant director-general for access to medicines and health products at WHO said.

As some countries try to return to some form of normalcy, fully vaccinated people have let their guard down by getting rid of the face masks.

In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had indicated earlier this year that fully vaccinated people didn’t need to wear masks.

However, health experts are now saying that the delta variant is now the “greatest threat.”

Countries facing new outbreaks are those with low vaccination rates.
