It has been just over Slot เหมาะกับใครกันนะ? a year since severe acute respiratory
syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) emerged as a cause of the respiratory
disease, COVID-19.

 

Despite this relatively short time, this virus has afflicted more than 100 million
around the world. More than 2 million COVID-19 patients have died. 

 

In fighting the greatest public health crisis in a century, the arrival of COVID-19
vaccines is thus much welcomed. In Singapore, seniors aged 70 and above will
receive COVID-19 vaccination letters over the next few weeks, after pilots
have been conducted in Tanjong Pagar and Ang Mo Kio.

 

Vaccination mimics an encounter with the virus to train the body’s immune system
to remember, recognise and rout this virus if it ever strikes. 

 

Initial signs of Israel’s COVID-19 vaccination programme, one of the first and
fastest in the world, are giving hope to many healthcare professionals globally.
High vaccination coverage in this country has led to remarkable drop in
the number of new COVID-19 cases.

 

As with other vaccines with which we have successfully controlled including
dreaded diseases such as smallpox and polio, the antiviral defence offered by
COVID-19 vaccines will help reduce SARS-CoV-2 infections and prevent
the spread from the upper to the lower airway, thereby reducing the likelihood
of severe respiratory disease.
