Covid: WHO calls for booster pause to vaccinate poorer nations

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

The World Health Organization (WHO) has called for a suspension on booster vaccines for Covid-19 until at least the end of September.

WHO Chief Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said a pause would allow for at least 10% of the population in every country to be vaccinated.

A number of nations including Israel and Germany have announced plans to administer a third dose.

But Dr Tedros has warned poorer nations are falling behind.

According to the WHO, low-income countries have only been able to administer 1.5 doses for every 100 people due to a lack of supply.

Dr Tedros said that there needs to be a reversal and that the majority of vaccines should go to lower income countries.

I thought Astra Zeneca was providing vaccines to the poorer countries at bargain prices and running fund raisers to pay for them so that the poor countries wouldn't have to.
