The World Health Organization Chief Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that people should learn to live with the coronavirus pandemic.
He further added that Covid-19 does not mean life has to stop, reports Times Now.
He also warned saying spikes in coronavirus transmission in a number of countries were being driven by young people "letting down their guard".
"Young people are not invincible," the WHO chief said in his virtual news conference in Geneva adding that they can get infected and can die and that they must take the same precautions.
Earlier, he said that political leadership and community engagement are the two vital pillars of the response to Covid-19.
"Almost 10 million cases, or two-thirds of all cases globally, are from 10 countries, and almost half of all cases reported so far are from just three countries," he had said.
Meanwhile, only three vaccine candidates are in phase III clinical trials across the globe and they are from the USA, UK and China.
WHO also issued a bulletin stating 24 vaccine candidates are in the stage of clinical evaluation across the globe and 141 vaccine candidates are in the pre-clinical evaluation stage.
