“Should I have fun watching the contagion unfold in front of my eyes? The # COVID19 pandemic is not taking a break tonight … # SARSCoV2 #DeltaVariant will take advantage of unvaccinated people, in crowded environments, without masks, screaming / shouting / singing. Devastating”. This is the alarming tweet from Maria van Kerkhove, head of the WHO technical group for coronavirus, posted last night after the Euro 2020 final and the images of the supporters’ celebrations.
Am I supposed to be enjoying watching transmission happening in front of my eyes?
The #COVID-19 pandemic is not taking a break tonight … #SARS-CoV-2 #DeltaVariant will take advantage of unvaccinated people, in crowded settings, unmasked, screaming / shouting / singing. Devastating.
