WHO expresses concern over vaccine distribution

GENEVA: World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Adhanom has expressed grave concern that low-income countries are not being provided with the corona virus vaccine as needed. About 39 million doses of the vaccine have been vaccinated in high-income countries, while only 25 doses have been given in a poor country, he said at a meeting of the World Health Organization (WHO). Despite the creation of a fair distribution framework, some countries and companies continue to prioritize bilateral agreements, he said, adding that such measures are increasing the cost of vaccines. Tedros said the world was on the brink of catastrophic moral failure and that the cost of that failure would be paid for by living and earning a living in the world's poorest countries.
