WHO warns of unjust COVID 19 vaccine distribution.
WHO has warned of the disadvantage of poor people in the COVID 19 vaccine distribution. It is a global crisis in which a vaccine must be shared like a “public good”, WHO said.
On the first day of the special meeting, UN Secretary General António Guterres made no secret of the fact that he is frustrated with the response of the international community to the pandemic. More than 1.5 million deaths and over 60 million sick people are the result.
Achim Steiner, head of the United Nations Development Program, emphasized an inequality that has increased again, as a result of the crisis. The corona pandemic could cause more than a billion people to suffer from extreme poverty by 2030.
The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, warned of the widening of the gap between rich and poor. Some countries would face other problems, in addition to the pandemic.
This also applies to the global distribution of protective equipment, medicines and above all, a vaccine, said WHO chief Ghebreyesus. The United Nations has set up the ACT Accelerator program and the COVAX vaccine alliance, for this purpose.
And there we have it for WHO warns of unjust COVID 19 vaccine distribution.
