A top medical expert for the World Health Organization admitted that no evidence exists to prove that the new COVID vaccines will prevent coronavirus infections.
Deputy Director General of Programs Dr. Soumya Swaminathan confessed during a WHO virtual press conference on Monday that she hasn’t seen any real evidence of the new COVID-19 vaccines’ effectiveness.
“I don’t believe we have the evidence on any of the vaccines to be confident that it’s going to prevent people from actually getting the infection and therefore being able to pass it on,” Swaminathan said.
The top WHO scientist’s startling remarks come days after she warned that the restrictive lockdown measures won’t let up until “the end of 2021” when “population immunity” becomes more ubiquitous.
“It’s going to take till the end of 2021 till we start seeing some level of population immunity coming up in some countries,” Swaminathan said last week.
“We have to keep our guard up, we have to do all the things that we know reduce the transmission and the chances of people getting ill from this,” she said. “That includes public health measures and individual behavioral changes.”
“While we can look forward – certainly by the end of next year – to a much better picture, the next few months, I think, are going to be tough,” she added.
Swaminathan also made headlines last spring after admitting that some vaccines kill people and that effective safety measures aren’t in place when developing them.
