Larry Brilliant blames slow vaccination for little COVID progress

Dr. Larry Brilliant told that the pandemic will not pass quickly, it will be seen, only a small percentage of the world’s population has been vaccinated against Covid-19.

Dr. Larry Brilliant, an epidemiologist who is part of the WHO team that helped break out of smallpox, said the delta variant is “probably the most contagious virus ever.” In recent months, the United States, India and China, as well as other countries in Europe, Africa and Asia, have struggled with highly portable Delta variable of the virus.

The World Health Organization declared Covid-19 global pandemic last March-after the disease, which first appeared in China in late 2019, has spread around the world.

The good news is that vaccines – especially those that use messenger RNA technology and one for that Johnson & Johnson are up against the delta variant, Brilliant told.

However, only 15% of the world’s population is vaccinated and more than 100 countries have vaccinated less than 5% of their population, Brilliant noted.

” I think we’re closer to the beginning than we are now ” [of the pandemic]it’s not because the variable we’re looking at right now will take so long, said Brilliant, founder and CEO of Pandefense Advisory.

“Unless we vaccinate everyone in more than 200 countries, there will still be new variants,” he said, predicting that the coronavirus will eventually become “a virus forever,” like the flu.
