By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On Monday, the World Health Organization (WHO) said that COVID-19 remains a global health emergency but that the pandemic is at a transition point, CNN reports.
WHO’s Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus agreed that the public health emergency of international concern, or PHEIC, declaration should continue.
WHO’s advisory committee issued a statement saying that it urges the agency to propose “alternative mechanisms to maintain the global and national focus on COVID-19 after the PHEIC is terminated.”
The agency continues to urge countries that vaccination can help achieve immunity.
In addition, the agency said that countries can incorporate COVID-19 vaccines into routine care; improve disease surveillance and maintain a strong health care system.
