The Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) warned on Wednesday that no country will emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic with booster doses of vaccines.
“No country will be able to get out of the epidemic with booster dosessaid Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who has repeatedly demonstrated against giving extra doses of vaccines against Covid-19. When a part of the world’s population, the poorest, especially in Africa, remains unvaccinated.
According to the WHO leader, speaking at the organization’s regular video press conference on the evolution of the epidemic, “random programs to promote ‘vaccination’ tend to prolong rather than end the epidemic, Shift available doses to countries that already have high vaccination ratesThis gives the virus more opportunities to spread and mutate.”
Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus’ warning comes as several countries, including Portugal, step forward in boosting vaccination against Covid-19 with a third dose. Israel decided to give a fourth dose to people over 60 and health professionals due to the Omicron variant of the new coronavirus, which is considered more contagious.
The Ethiopian doctor stressed that the agreed doses of vaccines against Covid-19 (two doses) “remain effective” against SARS-CoV-2 variants, including Omicron, and that ” The vast majority of admissions and deaths are of people who are not immunized and not people who do not have booster doses“.
A week ago, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said so There was no “evidence of efficacy of anabolic steroids” against MicronIt spreads very quickly and at an unprecedented rate.
According to the WHO Expert Committee on Vaccine Policy, at least 126 countries have instructed to give a booster dose or supplementary vaccine (eg for children), of which 120 have already started vaccination campaigns for this purpose. Most countries are rich.
Covid-19 is a respiratory disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which was discovered in late 2019 in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, and has spread worldwide.
