World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has called on all countries to abandon political and other preferences when distributing the coronavirus vaccine. Otherwise, it will not be possible to cope with the pandemic in the foreseeable future.
According to him, WHO believes that the vaccine should be distributed in two stages: the countries whose scientists worked on the creation of the vaccine should receive it first, and then those countries where there is the highest threat of further spread of the infection. It is proposed to vaccinate primarily physicians and people aged 65+, they are in the highest risk group.
Gebreyesus stressed that the drug will be distributed around the world only if both its effectiveness and safety are proven. The WHO Director General said that at the moment it is already known about nine vaccines created in different countries and close to launching them into mass production.
More than one hundred seventy countries have already joined the WHO partnership program. It is expected that by the end of next year, at least two billion doses of licensed vaccines will be produced at various enterprises, TASS reports.
