The World Health Organization has expressed concern that rich countries will stockpile vaccines for the Corona virus, due to the outbreak of the new mutant Omicron.

She said that this could threaten the supply of countries where most of the population is still without vaccines.

And some rich countries began to speed up the vaccination of their populations with additional doses to counter Omicron.

There are fears that the currently available vaccines are less effective against the new mutant.

Recent studies have shown that the Pfizer-Biontech vaccine leads to the production of a much smaller percentage of antibodies against Omicron, compared to what it leads to against the original strain of the Corona virus, but the body makes up for this deficit after receiving a booster dose of the vaccine.

But the World Health Organization says priority should be given to basic doses.

serious discrepancy

The Director of Vaccines at the World Health Organization, Kate O’Brien, has urged rich countries to continue giving vaccines to countries that need them in order to address the world’s dangerous vaccination disparities.

She said, “We are heading to Omicron’s circumstances, whatever they may be. What we fear is that vaccines will accumulate in the rich countries alone.”

The quantities of vaccines given to the global Kovacs program have increased in recent months, but officials at the World Health Organization fear that the amount available will decline, as happened in the middle of this year, due to the suspension of exports from India, where infections are increasing.

Significant increase in injuries

Dr. O’Brien said it’s possible that additional doses enhance protection against Omicron, but there is little evidence that it helps prevent severe disease.

Omicron is the largest mutant of the original coronavirus to date.

It was first discovered in South Africa, which is experiencing a significant increase in coronavirus cases.

British officials say early indications are that Omicron is spreading faster than the currently dominant delta mutant.

But it is not clear if omicron has a greater potential to cause serious illness.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief infectious disease expert in the United States, said initial indications are that the Omicron mutant is more prevalent but less dangerous.

The world has recorded 267 million cases of coronavirus and 5 million deaths since the outbreak of the pandemic in 2020, according to Johns Hopkins University statistics.
