Episode #28

What is the latest information on the SARS-CoV-2 virus variants? How is WHO tracking these virus mutations globally and how do we know which ones are important? Answering these questions in this episode of Science in 5 is WHO’s Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove.


  1. Call it airborne.
    we need global airdecontamination rules!
    Handdesinfection and cleaning surfaces aren’t enough.
    main transmission are small plume droplets !
    that is why ventilation and wearing masks works.

  2. This south african variant is considered more potent mutation of covid19, as we all know that south african is the capital of virus prone region. Awaits, that this could be more contagious than UK variant and even more dreadful. It immensely show more complication in our health system. And besides coronavirus mutation will never stop! it will continue developing new qualities in it and keep mutating until it become more and more life threatening,.

  3. The one from Who tell us the Pandemie is over, the other one tell us its dangerous 🤔 In My Opinion get every member of the Who in jail, would be better, Who most dangerous Organisation in the World

  4. WHO can you please provide an RCT that proves masks reduces the transmission of respiratory virus ???
    It is 19 of February and I am still waiting ????????????????

  5. Reports hold.that blood type A has a more severe course. So Dr Maria is that true overseas? And that blood type O has a milder course generally. B117 is in 40 States now while B 1351 and the P1 are rare in the USA.
