World health organization (WHO) has called on member states to help vaccinate at least 10 percent of the population of every country by the end of September.
Director-general of the un health agency, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus made the plea at the world health assembly.

The coronavirus have so far infected about 168 million persons globally.

Addressing the world health assembly, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, the ongoing vaccine inequity is spreading the covid-19 pandemic adding that, the number of covid-19 vaccine doses available to the W.H.O’s COVAX program remains massively inadequate.

WHO DG told the assembly that, 125 countries and economies have received 72 million doses through COVAX so far, but those doses are sufficient for barely 1 percent of the populations of those countries and economies combined.

Head of the un health agency, said the world remains in a fragile situation despite the downturn in the number of cases and deaths being reported for three consecutive weeks.
