The World Health Organization is confident in the effectiveness of the vaccines currently in use. However, experts believe it is likely that there will be variants of the coronavirus beyond their control.
This, as reported by Sky News, said Dr. David Nabarro, WHO Ambassador for the fight against the coronavirus pandemic:
So far I do not think that we have any vaccine-resistant strains of the disease, but they will almost certainly appear sooner or later.
He believes that it is imperative to take all precautions to avoid a new wave of the pandemic. At the same time, Nabarro declares that it is necessary to move on in order to cope with diseases around the world as much as possible.
As our publication reported, WHO has decided to designate the strains of the coronavirus Greek letters: British – Alpha, South African – Beta, Indian – Delta. The organization announced that, in addition to simplifying terms, the innovation is intended to remove stigma from names, not to use Indian, British and so on to designate variants of names.
If more than 24 variants of coronavirus are officially identified in the world, and the system runs out of Greek letters, then WHO will announce a new naming program
