Covid-19 Vaccine to be Ready Within One Year: WHO Chief

WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus had a meeting on June 25 with the European Parliament's Committee for Environment, Public Health and Food Safety

Scientists predict the world may have a Covid-19 vaccine within one year or even a few months earlier, said the Director-General of the World Health Organisation (WHO) even as he underlined the importance of global cooperation to develop, manufacture and distribute vaccines as per Latest World News.

However, making the vaccine available and distributing it to all will be a challenge and requires political will, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Thursday during a meeting with the European Parliament’s Committee for Environment, Public Health and Food Safety.

One option would be to give the vaccine only to those that are most vulnerable to the virus. There are currently over 100 Covid-19 vaccine candidates in various stages of development.

WHO chief Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the pandemic has highlighted the importance of global solidarity and that health should not be seen as a cost but an investment. He added that all countries in the world must strengthen primary health care and crisis preparedness and stressed the need for EU leadership globally.
