Do not expect vaccines, warn WHO
The World Health Organization said on Friday that Coxax will deliver 14.4 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to 31 more countries next week, as it has warned people, with decency, to hopefully bring vaccines.
The Covax global vaccine-sharing facility shipped more than 20 million doses to 20 countries as the plan was intended to ensure poorer countries access to the jabs that were closed this week.
But the WHO feared that more waves of coronovirus epidemics could be on the way if people thought the worldwide roll-out of vaccines meant the crisis was over.
“I am really very worried that … we think we are through this. We are not,” WHO Emergency Director Michael Ryan told a news conference. “And if we are not careful, the country will be third And are about to return to the fourth canto. We should not waste the hope that vaccines bring our guards away from other areas. “
WHO Director-General Tedros Adnom Ghebius praised the first full week of the Kovacs roll-out, but said the rich countries were still leaving others behind in the vaccination race.
