London : Vaccination work is going on in full swing amid the worldwide corona epidemic. Meanwhile, World Health Organization chief Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has said that vaccination is very important to control this epidemic and to revive the economy. He has called for vaccination of at least 10 percent of the population in every country of the world by September.
In the India Global Forum organized in a virtual way, the WHO Director-General, referring to the disparity in the access of different countries to the vaccine, said that it is increasing the risk of epidemics. He said, ‘Some countries have come a long way in vaccination, while many other countries do not even have vaccines for their health workers, older people and high risk groups.’

He stressed that not being vaccinated in some countries could pose a threat to other countries as well. He called for vaccination of at least 10 per cent of the population in each country by September this year and 70 per cent of the population by the middle of next year and urged countries to take global initiatives in this direction.
The WHO chief said that the epidemic can be controlled and the global economy can be revived only through equitable vaccination. He said that until this epidemic is not eradicated from everywhere, it will never be eradicated.
This statement of the head of the World Health Organization comes at a time when a United Nations report states that the rate of Kovid vaccination in different countries of the world is uneven and in many countries less than one percent of the population is vaccinated. While in some countries it is more than 60 percent.
