There is a chance of other pandemics due to the failure to comply with recommendations
We have had many pandemics and there will be more pandemics. [...] Estimates put the number of viruses alone around the world at more than 100 million, of which only 6,000 have been described, and there are 500 types of viruses that cause pathologies in humans. So, the pool and potential for a viral world is huge — Vladimir Kutyrev, Director, Russian Anti-Plague Scientific Research Institute "Microbe"..
It’s is impossible to cope with a pandemic alone. The pandemic knows neither national borders nor state borders. It’s absolutely indifferent to conflicts. It’s absolutely indifferent to wars and businesses. This is why the UN Secretary General, probably from the very first moment when the pandemic announced itself loud and clear, appealed to the whole world to conclude a global truce; 160 countries responded to this appeal, but, unfortunately, far from everyone actually adhered to this call. As we can see, conflicts continue. There hasn’t been any lifting of the sanctions that are disastrous for the economies of countries, which is also important in a pandemic — Vladimir Kuznetsov, Director, United Nations Information Centre in Moscow.
We see that there is inequality not only in the distribution of vaccines, but social inequalities and inequalities in the provision of health services. There is inequality among different social groups in a single country. This may be due to ineffective management systems. Various groups are paying a very high price for their poor readiness to act — Michael Ryan, Executive Director, Health Emergencies Programme, World Health Organization (WHO).
The recommendations given by the WHO [...] are being followed and fulfilled in absolutely different ways — Larisa Katysheva, Director of the Center for Contemporary Communications, Graduate School of Public Management (GSPM) of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA).
