The World Health Organization Urges Fully Vaccinated People To Wear Masks As Delta Variant Spreads

On Friday, The World Health Organization urged fully vaccinated people to wear masks and abide by COVID 19 pandemic safety measures due to the contagious delta variant that is spreading. About a month ago fully vaccinated people were given the “Ok” to go outside maskless. Different establishments and businesses began to let shoppers enter their facilities maskless.

This brought up a number of concerns. How would you be able to tell if someone is vaccinated or not if you cannot ask for proof? What if someone around me has COVID and catches it? Now, the WHO is suggested that everyone even fully vaccinated people wear their masks.

“People cannot feel safe just because they had the two doses. They still need to protect themselves,” Dr. Mariangela Simao, WHO assistant director-general for access to medicines and health products, said during a news briefing from the agency’s Geneva headquarters.

“Vaccine alone won’t stop community transmission,” Simao added. “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.”
