China has joined the World Health Organization (WHO) Kovacs Alliance to ensure balanced distribution of the Kovid-19 vaccine, rich and poor alike. A spokesman for the country’s foreign ministry announced the decision in a statement posted on Twitter on Friday (9 October). By far, China is the largest economy supporting the initiative. Qatar-based Al Jazeera reports.
The full version of Kovacs is the Kovid-19 Vaccine Global Access Facility. In addition to the World Health Organization (WHO), pandemic preparedness for pandemics is aligned with innovation and with the charity Global Alliance for Immunization and Immunization (GAVI). The goal is to encourage governments to distribute the Kovid 19 vaccine to high-risk countries, whether rich or poor.
On Friday, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said in a Twitter post that his country was joining the Kovacs coalition. “We are taking this strong step to ensure proper distribution of the Corona vaccine worldwide,” he wrote. I have taken this decision especially for developing countries. ‘
The World Health Organization aims to supply at least 200 million doses of the Corona vaccine worldwide by 2021. So far 161 countries have taken the initiative. However, there has been no response from the United States and Russia yet.
