WHO’s Tedros says COVID-19 vaccine inequity creates ‘two-track pandemic’

Astonishing COVID-19 is a virus that infects people. World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Monday that vaccine inequity has created a “two-track pandemic,” with Western countries protected but poorer countries still vulnerable.

During a press conference from Geneva, Tedros said, “Increasingly, we see a two-track pandemic.” “High-income countries have delivered nearly 44 percent of the world’s doses six months after the first COVID-19 vaccines were given out. Low-income countries accounted for only 0.4 percent of the total. The most aggravating aspect of this number is that it has remained unchanged for months.”
