People who have been fully vaccinated will still need to wear masks, practice social distancing, and take other precautions to prevent the spread of the more deadly and contagious Delta variant of the coronavirus, which is spreading rapidly around the world, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

People cannot be considered safe just because they received two doses, according to Mariangela Simao, WHO's assistant director-general for access to medicines and health products. “The vaccine alone won’t stop community transmission. People need to continue to use masks consistently, be in ventilated spaces, hand hygiene ... the physical distance, avoid crowding,” Simao said during a news briefing from the agency’s Geneva headquarters, according to CNBC. "This continues to be extremely important, even if you’re vaccinated when you have a community transmission ongoing," she added.

WHO authorities told CNBC that fully vaccinated people should continue to "play it safe" because highly contagious variations, such as Delta, are spreading in many countries, causing outbreaks, and a big section of the world has yet to be vaccinated against the coronavirus illness, or Covid-19.

“Yes, you can reduce some measures and different countries have different recommendations in that regard. But there’s still the need for caution. As we are seeing, there are new variants emerging,” Dr Bruce Aylward, a senior advisor to the WHO’s director-general, was quoted as saying by CNBC.
