WHO chief questions on fairness in vaccine distribution
Geneva [Switzerland]: WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has questioned the fairness in distribution of the vaccines.
Tedros said the world is on the “brink of a catastrophic moral failure.
Participating in a virtual meet he said the promise of equitable access to coronavirus vaccines is at serious risk as over 39 million doses of vaccine have now been administered in at least 49 higher-income countries.
The WHO chief said that these actions will not help in stopping the spread of coronavirus but “will only prolong the pandemic”.
The Johns Hopkins University said a total of 95,392,103 COVID-19 cases and 2,035,895 deaths have been reported globally so far.
