GENEVA: The World Health Organization (WHO) hopes to provide corona virus vaccine to poor and low-middle-income countries in February.
Bruce Aylward, a senior WHO adviser, said on Monday that the WHO would be able to launch the Covid 19 vaccine in poor and lower-middle-income countries through its Cox program in February.
“Now more than 40 countries have started vaccinating against CoV 19. However, all of this vaccination, or in practice, has so far been in high-income or middle-income countries, “he said.” We have to see vaccines go into the arms of lower and lower-middle-income countries. “
He said the COAX program could start vaccinating people in February, and efforts were being made to speed it up so that some countries could get some vaccines this month.
The United Nations has doubled its orders to vaccine companies under the Kovacs program.
Meanwhile, Palestine has contacted four vaccine companies, including a Russian.
