WHO claim there may never be ‘silver bullet’ for Covid-19

The World Health Organization has said that there might never be a “silver bullet” answer to the new coronavirus, despite the rush to discover effective vaccines.

“We all hope to have a number of effective vaccines that can help prevent people from infection,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus stated.

“However, there’s no silver bullet at the moment, and there might never be,” he then cautioned.

Covid-19 has sent the international arena into turmoil since its emergence and many are hopeful that a vaccine or effective treatment will be created as soon as possible.
