COVID-19 – If anyone is left behind, all are held back.

World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “COVID-19 – If anyone is left behind, all are held back.” – below is their description.

Health and care workers all over the world have stood in the breach between life and death. We owe them so much.

I’m calling on 74th World Health Assembly to support a massive push to vaccinate at least:

-10% of every country’s population by September

-30% by the end of 2021.

A small group of countries that make and buy the majority of the world’s vaccines control the fate of the rest of the world. If anyone is left behind, all are held back. If the most vulnerable is first to be protected – then we all win!”- Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General
