Global Health: Humanity has all the tools to defeat Corona

The head of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, stressed that humanity has all the necessary opportunities to overcome the Corona virus epidemic.

He said, “The epidemic will end when the world decides to eliminate it, and this is in our hands.”

He added: “Humanity has all the means to defeat the virus, however, the world has not used these tools well.”

He pointed out that “the goal of the World Health Organization is to vaccinate at least 40% of the Earth’s population by the end of this year,” stressing that “this can only be achieved if the statements of countries and companies that control the supply of the vaccine are accompanied by their actions.”

He called on the countries that reached this indicator to provide medicines within the framework of the international “Cofax” mechanism, as “it is necessary to suspend intellectual property rights for vaccines in order to eliminate the epidemic.”

More than 244 million cases of coronavirus have been recorded in the world since the outbreak of the epidemic.
