Dr Bruce Eyalward, a senior member of the World Health Organization, said today (Thursday) that the corona crisis “could easily be dragged deep into 2022”, the BBC reported.
Dr. Eyalward referred to the low vaccine data in the Third World. For example, only less than 5 percent of the African population has so far been vaccinated against the virus, compared to 40 percent in most other continents.
Dr. Eyalward called on rich countries to give up their place in line for vaccines in favor of poorer countries. “I can say we are not on the right track. We need to speed up the pace or the epidemic will last a year longer than it should. “
