Africa Got Only 11m Of World’s 548m COVID-19 Vaccines, Says WHO
Africa has only got 11 million of the 548 million COVID-19 vaccines distributed globally, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Deploring the discrimination against the continent in the distribution of the jabs and other personal protective equipment (PPE) yesterday, in a statement ahead of today’s World Health Day, WHO Regional Director for Africa, Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, canvassed a fairer and healthier world.
She said: “The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a light on inequalities between countries.
“Amid shortages of essential supplies, African countries have been pushed to the back of the queue in accessing COVID-19 test kits, personal protective equipment, and now vaccines.
