The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said he was optimistic that we could overcome the coronavirus epidemic by 2022. In his New Year’s message, however, he warned against “narrow-minded nationalism and vaccine accumulation.”
He said we now have more information and tools on covid than two years ago, but also warned that the longer the distribution of vaccines between countries around the world remains unequal, the greater the risk that the virus will mutate unpredictably, which is not the case. we can prevent it. “If we put an end to inequality, we will put an end to the epidemic,” Ghebreyesus says.
The WHO’s new goal is to have 70 percent of people vaccinated in all countries of the world by July 2022 to end the pandemic. (BBC)
