UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said inequality in access to coronavirus vaccines “is the best ally of the COVID-19 pandemic”.
In a joint press conference with the Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Guterres described the control of rich countries over vaccines against the Corona virus as “not only immoral, but also stupid,” stressing that this opens the way for the emergence of potentially dangerous mutants.
He pointed out that this “allows mutated versions to develop freely, leading to the death of millions of others and prolonging the economic downturn,” stressing that “failing to secure a fair distribution of vaccines is not only immoral, but also stupid.”
In turn, Tedros said that “56 countries failed to achieve this, but it was not because of a mistake on their part”, but because of the lack of vaccines.
He explained that “by the end of September, about 6.5 billion doses were actually administered worldwide,” adding: “With global production of vaccines reaching about 1.5 billion doses per month, supplies seem sufficient to achieve our goals provided that they are distributed fairly.” .
