Closures, remote education are 'incomplete solutions': Dr. Adel Al-Wahadneh

Adviser to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for Medical Affairs, Brigadier General Dr. Adel Al-Wahadneh, said Friday that vaccinations must come first before any closures are instated. 

Brigadier General Al-Wahadneh stressed that any closure or remote education are “incomplete” solutions that were useful in the early periods of the pandemic, but are no longer viable options. According to him, if countries will continue to close until every country has the same vaccination percentage, this will take an extremely long time, and will be unaffordable to several countries. 

The Adviser to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff for Medical Affairs criticized the conflicting media statements made about the epidemiological situation and the way to deal with the pandemic, calling not to speak through the media in the language of assertiveness, and for debates not to become more than commercial advertisements.

Al-Wahadneh stressed that closures are an issue of no value, and that without vaccination, we will not leave this circle.
