Widening Gap In COVID Vaccine Distribution Cannot Continue – WHO

World Health Organization

World Health Organization

The World Health Organization has come out to warn against a widening gap between numbers of coronavirus vaccines in wealthy countries and those distributed to poorer nations through the global Covax initiative.

UN health agency chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus recently revealed this at the virtual conference, and the world has been reacting.

According to him, the gap between the number of vaccines administered in rich countries, and the number of vaccines administered through Covax is growing every single day, and the unequitable distribution of vaccines is not just a moral outrage, it’s also economically and epidemiologically self-defeating.

He added that as long as the virus continues to circulate anywhere, people will continue to die, and this cannot be allowed to happen.

His words, “The gap between the number of vaccines administered in rich countries, and the number of vaccines administered through Covax is growing every single day,”

“The unequitable distribution of vaccines is not just a moral outrage, it’s also economically and epidemiologically self-defeating,”

“As long as the virus continues to circulate anywhere, people will continue to die, trade and travel will continue to be disrupted, and the economic recovery will be further delayed.”
