WHO calls for a moratorium on Covid-19 vaccine boosters until September

The World Health Organisation has called for a moratorium on Covid-19 vaccine boosters until at least the end of September.

Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said the move will ensure vaccination for at least 10 per cent of the population in every country.

Mr Tedros said: “I understand the concern of all governments to protect their people from the Delta variant. But we cannot accept countries that have already used most of the global supply of vaccines using even more of it.”

路透社 reported that the high-income countries administered around 50 doses for every 100 people in May. And as per WHO, that number has since doubled.

And low-income countries have only been able to administer 1.5 doses for every 100 人们, due to lack of supply.

Mr Tedros said: “We need an urgent reversal from the majority of vaccines going to high-income countries to the majority going to low-income countries.”

No need for kids to be vaccinated to attend school: WHO

The World Health Organisation has said that children do not need to be vaccinated to attend school.

WHO emphasised that it was more important for adults around children to be fully vaccinated.

Dr Katherine O’ Brien, a member of the WHO Covid-expert committee said: “There is no requirement for teenagers or kids to have to be vaccinated in order to attend school.”

她补充说: “That should not be a barrier for them to attend school. It’s about the protection of the adults around them, who are the ones who really have more risk of disease.”

同时, in India, earlier last month, Director of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi had also said that the country “should consider reopening schools in a “staggered way.”

Schools in India have been shut since March 2020 when lockdowns were first imposed across the country.
