In the US, they said about the "wrong choice" of the WHO
Joe Biden promises to send 80 million doses of vaccines as an aid to low-and middle-income countries.
The US authorities criticized the WHO's proposal to introduce a moratorium on the introduction of a third coronavirus vaccine and called this position wrong. This was announced on Wednesday, August 4, by White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki during a briefing.
"We definitely believe that this moratorium is the wrong choice,вЂќ Psaki said.
According to her, the United States has enough vaccines to make a booster vaccine against coronavirus to the residents of the country.
Psaki also noted that, if necessary, the United States will offer additional doses of vaccines to countries in need, without stopping the revaccination program in their own country.
This statement was made by the White House in response to the call of WHO head Tedros Adan Ghebreyesus about the need to introduce a moratorium on revaccination from COVID-19 in wealthy countries. The head of the organization stressed that it is now much more important to vaccinate at least a tenth of the world's population with a double dose. However, it is impossible to do this because of mass purchases of the vaccine by rich countries.
Recall that the Ministry of Health of Israel decided to revaccinate citizens over sixty years of age with the third dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
