The WHO calls for the immediate donation of 10 million COVID-19 vaccines

26 Mar 2021  |  infobae
The World Health Organization (WHO) has urgently called for the international community to donate 10 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to assist 20 countries lacking supplies amid rising global infections. The Covax system, led by WHO and partners, needs these doses to begin vaccinating healthcare workers and the elderly in these countries within the next two weeks. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus emphasized the need for hundreds of millions more doses in the coming months. Covax aims to supply vaccines to 20% of the population in nearly 200 countries, with a funding mechanism for 92 disadvantaged nations. The call comes as vaccine supply issues, exacerbated by export bans and nationalistic policies, have created market inequalities. WHO is negotiating with Indian authorities to balance local and international vaccine demands as India faces a surge in cases.
