WHO denounces widening inequality of access to vaccines: “Grotesque”
Posted On March 22, 2021
The inequality of access to vaccines against Covid-19 between rich and poor countries “is widening” and becoming “grotesque”, said Monday the director general of the World Health Organization (WHO).
“In January, I declared that the world was on the brink of catastrophic moral failure if urgent measures were not taken to ensure equitable distribution of anti-Covid vaccines. We have the means to avoid this failure, but it is shocking how little has been done to prevent it, “Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said at a press conference.
