Chief Scientist of the World Health Organization (WHO) Soumya Swaminathan announced the number of people on the planet who have antibodies to coronavirus. This is reported by RBC with reference to the statement of the WHO scientist.
According to Swaminathan, nearly 500 herd immunity studies have been conducted worldwide.
Answering the question of whether it was possible to achieve herd immunity in large cities in which a significant part of the population has been infected with Covid-19, a WHO employee noted that less than 10% of the world's population currently has antibodies to coronavirus.
Meanwhile, Regional Director for Europe of the World Health Organization (WHO) Hans Kluge supposes that the pandemic of coronavirus would end at the beginning of the next year.
“The pandemic of coronavirus will end at the beginning of 2022. The worst scenario is behind. We know about the virus much more in comparison with 2020, when the virus has started to spread,” Kluge noted.
He is sure that despite the fact that the coronavirus continues to spread, the necessity in all restrictions will no longer be necessary. Nevertheless, it is impossible to define the clear outcome of the pandemic.
