Corona Virus: 11 billion doses of the vaccine will be needed to vaccinate 70 percent of the population

The head of the World Health Organization stressed that the equitable distribution of vaccines will put an end to the Corona virus epidemic.

At least 11 billion doses of coronavirus vaccines must be produced to vaccinate 70% of the population in every country in the world. This was stated by Tedros Adhan Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization, on Thursday. TASS reports it.

Tedros added that this goal can be achieved with the current production level if the distribution of vaccines is even.

In an online press conference with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the head of the World Health Organization presented a strategy to achieve universal vaccination against COVID-19 by mid-2022.

The Director-General of the World Health Organization said: “Achieving these goals requires at least 11 billion doses of vaccine.” By the end of September, “nearly 6.5 billion doses” had been administered worldwide, according to Tedros.

“With today’s vaccine production of 1.5 billion per month, there is enough supply to meet our goals if they are evenly distributed,” Tedros added.

until the distribution

The head of the World Health Organization stressed that the equitable distribution of vaccines will put an end to the Corona virus epidemic. He added that the WHO vaccination goals can only be achieved if countries controlling vaccine production focus on providing COVAX and the African Vaccine Fund (AVAT).

In this context, Tedros pointed to a “frightening inequality” in the global distribution of coronavirus vaccines, with rich countries consuming up to 75 percent of all vaccines produced so far. At the same time, low-income countries have received only less than one percent of the world’s production of coronavirus vaccines, TASS concluded.
