Fight on multiple fronts

Fight on multiple fronts

MISE & Agrave; DAY

Two years after the start of the pandemic, the results are relentless. It will take a lot more effort if we are to ever get out of the woods.

In addition to being relentless, the observation hurts a lot at the start of 2022. If we had been told, two years ago, that we would still be entangled in the pandemic, despite three doses of vaccine and countless measures, it would have been a collective depression. & nbsp; & nbsp;

Human beings live in hope. We must continue to hope. But we must also give ourselves the means on several fronts. & Nbsp;

Perfect recipe & nbsp;

Insufficient vaccine coverage and screening levels represent a perfect recipe for variants to reproduce and amplify. I'm not saying it, but the director of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. & Nbsp; & nbsp;

The latter insisted, before the holidays, on the fact that the end of the pandemic is “a matter of choice”. & nbsp; & nbsp;

Vaccination compulsory & nbsp;

Here, we are debating compulsory vaccination, which we will one day arrive, according to the Federal Minister of Health, Jean-Yves Duclos. Applied in a growing number of countries, the measure should be considered “when all other remedies to increase the vaccination rate have been exhausted”, according to the WHO. & Nbsp; & nbsp;

It is agreed that this is the case with us. It is high time to tighten the screw against the recalcitrant who, privileged by the fact of having access to vaccines, still refuse it. & Nbsp; & nbsp;

That said, as long as the virus circulates in disadvantaged countries where the population is poorly protected, it will continue to strike us. & nbsp; & nbsp;

The privileged countries must unite to vaccinate the planet. According to the OECD, it would cost 50 billion, far less than the 10 trillion that the G20 countries have spent so far to protect their economies since the onset of the crisis. & Nbsp; & nbsp;

< p> To get back to our normal lives, we have to move into fourth gear. & nbsp;
