World has entered stage of ‘vaccine apartheid’ : WHO head

Zurich – The world has reached a situation of “vaccine apartheid”, World Health Organisation Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said today, and was no longer just at risk of that status.

“The big problem is a lack of sharing. So the solution is more sharing,” he told a virtual Paris Peace Forum event.

Earlier, he called on Covid-19 vaccine manufacturers to make shots available to the Covax vaccine-sharing facility sooner than planned due to a supply shortfall left by Indian export disruptions. — Reuters
