COVID, THE LATEST LIVE NEWS
07.00 am – WHO: 80% vaccines globally administered in developed countries – About 80% of the 5.5 billion doses of Covid-19 vaccines administered globally ended up in high-income countries. The director general of the World Health Organization Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said today at a press conference. “We’ve heard excuses from manufacturers and some high-income countries about how low-income countries can’t absorb vaccines,” Tedros said. “Because producers prioritized or were legally obliged to abide by bilateral agreements with rich countries willing to pay more, low-income countries were deprived of the tools to protect their people.”
