The WHO spoke about the “injustice” that gives rise to new mutations of the coronavirus


The coronavirus pandemic will end if the distribution of vaccines between countries becomes fair. This was stated in his New Year’s address by the head of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adan Ghebreyesus.

Permanent inequities in drug distribution increase the risk of coronavirus mutation, he said.

The head of WHO believes that it is worth now “to abandon narrow nationalism and the accumulation of vaccines against COVID-19.”

“Narrow nationalism and vaccine stockpiles in some countries have blown up justice and created ideal conditions for the omicron variant to emerge, and the longer the injustice lasts, the higher the risk of developing the virus in a way we cannot predict,” warned Gebreyesus.

In his opinion, “if we end inequality, we will end the pandemic.”

Earlier, the international human rights organization Amnesty International (AI) also condemned the uneven distribution of vaccines against COVID-19 in the world.

We add that WHO plans to vaccinate 70% of people by July 2022. Humanity has “185 days left before the finish line,” the WHO said, noting that 2021 was a difficult year in the fight against the pandemic.
