General Director of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adan Greesusus, speaking at the World Forum of Leaders, announced the “terrible inequality” in accessing Vaccines from COVID-19 in the world. The text of his speech is published on the WHO website.

Tedros Adan Hebresus noted that by now almost a third of the world’s population was completely vaccinated, more than six billion doses of vaccines were introduced. At the same time, he stressed that 75 percent of vaccines received countries with income above average and high levels of income, and less than half of one percent of global volume were put into countries with low income. According to him, only 4 percent of the population are completely vaccinated in Africa.

The head of WHO recalled that the purpose of the organization is a vaccination of 40 percent of the population of each country by the end of 2021 and 70 percent – by mid-2022. For this it is necessary that countries and companies control the global supplies of vaccines will be made.
