The effectiveness of vaccination against coronavirus infection is achieved by its ubiquity. This was stated by the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adan Ghebreyesus during a briefing with President of Germany Frank-Walter Steinmeier on Monday, February 22.
Geybreyesus urged countries not to postpone vaccination in order to avoid the emergence of new strains of coronavirus.
“In this case, the vaccines that we used may become useless,” he warned during the broadcast in Twitter.
According to him, the lack of drugs in developing countries will create difficulties for wealthy countries.
Earlier in February, Ghebreyesus called on countries to share the coronavirus vaccine.
