THE World Boxing Council (WBC) and Guyana Boxing Board of Control (GBBC), yesterday made a rallying call for Guyanese athletes, particularly those involved in the fistic sport, to get vaccinated against COVID-19. While being vaccinated is not a requirement to compete in the sport, more so professionally, boxers have been urged to take the ‘jab’, the WBC and the GBBC said in a release pointing out that the pandemic has disrupted all aspects of life from the individual to the social, causing serious economic damage, pushing the health system to the limit, and forcing governments around the world to take critical emergency action.
“However, thanks to the tireless work of researchers, doctors, epidemiologists, the members of the pharmaceutical community, despite the relatively short development time, hope came in the vaccine against the COVID-19 virus.

The vaccine was at last a REALITY,” the location and international boxing group said.
They added that it’s important to clarify that all vaccines are safe. “It is equally important to know that all or at least most people get vaccinated because they recognise that in this way it is more difficult for the virus to spread when many people in a community are immune – that is to say: the greater the volume of vaccinated people, the lower the contagion rate.” Getting vaccinated, WBC said, is an act of love and solidarity, “since it is not only to think individually but also of others, from our loved ones to those whom we do not know.” The vaccine is the vital preventive measure against COVID-19 and the only real way and the only real hope to end this nightmare.
