The Chief of the World Health Organization warned on Friday that the second year of the Corona epidemic was going to be very deadly. WHO director general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyes said,
The head of the World Health Organization said in the press conference, ‘I can understand why some countries want to give vaccines to children and teenagers here, but for the time being I would request them to reconsider and donate the vaccine to Kovacs instead. I am. ‘
What is Kovacs?
The Kovacs facility is a global association with the Corona vaccine. Its purpose is to develop vaccine development, production and reach it to everyone. This collaboration is being led by GAVI. GAVI is an alliance of Epidemic Preparedness Innovation (CEPI) and WHO.
India is facing a very dangerous second wave of Corona
This year, India is facing a very dangerous second wave of Corona. There are about as many new cases coming up in India as new cases are coming up in the rest of the world. So far more than 2 lakh 60 thousand Indians have died from Corona. Similarly, Japan is currently struggling with a fierce fourth wave of Corona and there are 3 regions where emergency has to be imposed just 10 weeks before the Olympics. Now the demand for the cancellation of the Olympic Games has started growing.
Corona has collected more than 33.47 lakh lives till date
So far, at least 33 lakh 47 thousand people worldwide have died due to the corona epidemic. After rapid vaccination in the US, the situation there has improved rapidly. About 60 percent of the adults there have received one or two doses of the vaccine. Pfizer vaccine has been started in the US for children between 12 and 15 years from Thursday. But this superpower of the world has suffered the most from Corona. So far more than 5 lakh 80 thousand people have died due to corona in America. Guidelines related to wearing masks for those who have been vaccinated in the US have now been withdrawn.
Rich countries have bought more vaccines than their total population.
Countries like the US, Canada have accumulated such a stock of vaccines that will remain intact even after vaccinating their entire population. In such a situation, the World Health Organization is worried that the lack of vaccine in poor countries may not make the situation worse. This is the reason why the WHO Chief is requesting to donate the vaccine for the Kovacs program.
