Covid-19 Vaccines Be Recognized As ‘Global Public Health Goods’: WHO

Mumbai: The World Health Organisation (WHO) has recapitulated the need for vaccines and has urged all countries must contribute to the same.

While addressing a Press Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, Katherine O’Brien, Director of WHO’s Department of Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals said that pathogens and germs cannot be prevented from crossing the borders which is why these vaccines have to be recognised as protecting the whole of the world and the contributions from every country to do that.

“Although one country may be able to vaccinate a high proportion of individuals, and in fact, even induce herd immunity in the country, the transmission of pathogens crosses borders,” she said, adding that everyone is at risk if any country is at risk.

Meanwhile, Globally 5,304,033 people have been infected by coronavirus so far, and the total number of deaths from the disease now stands at 340,003.
