As we reported earlier, head of the World Health Organization Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus assured that the vaccine against coronavirus will not stop the pandemic if people do not follow the quarantine restrictions.

"Since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, we knew that a vaccine would be essential for bringing the pandemic under control. But it’s important to emphasise that a vaccine will complement the other tools we have, not replace them," he stated.

The WHO also reports that the first supplies of the vaccine against Covid-19 will be restricted that is why the major focus will be landed on the vaccination of the medical workers, old people and other risk groups.
