UN Wants More Covid-19 Vaccines For Africa

Must Read

The United Nations (U.N) Security Council has called for accelerated availability of coronavirus vaccines for Africa, expressing concern that the continent has received only about 2% of doses administered globally.

The call urged increased and accelerated donation of safe and effective vaccine doses from developed economies and others with supplies to African countries in need, especially through the World Health Organization’s ACT-Accelerator program, which includes the COVAX facility to buy and deliver vaccines for the world’s poorest countries.

U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said the limited supply and access to vaccines are hampering and delaying Africa’s recovery from the pandemic.

Guterres said equitable and sustainable vaccine roll-out worldwide is the quickest path towards a fast and fair recovery.
