WHO says COVID pandemic will drag on until 2022

In Africa, less than 5% of the population is now vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The World Health Organization believes the COVID-19 pandemic will “last a year longer than it should” due to slow vaccinations in poor countries.

The corresponding statement was voiced by senior adviser to WHO Bruce Aylward, writes the BBC.

The expert noted that less than 5% of the population is now vaccinated against coronavirus in Africa. He called on wealthy nations to abandon their vaccine queues so that pharmaceutical companies can prioritize low-income countries.

Otherwise, Aylward pointed out, the coronavirus crisis could “easily drag on until 2022.” “I can tell you that we are not on the right track,” the WHO spokesman said.
