Dozens of countries have failed to administer a second dose of anti-Govt vaccine, and a lack of it risks permanently disrupting vaccination campaigns, the WHO warned on Friday, June 18th. “The second dose – we have a lot of countries that need to stop the vaccine campaign for 30 or 40 countries – they may have received a second dose of AstraZeneca, but it is not possible to do so.”, Said Dr. Bruce Ailward, WHO’s head of overseeing the Kovacs international distribution system.

“The gap (between two injections) is longer than we want it to be now”, He warned, Kovacs is in direct talks with AstraZeneca, but also the Serum Institute of India, which has to produce most of the quantities for Goa, but its production has been banned from being exported in India in the face of urgent needs.

A very long interval between the two doses can facilitate the appearance of more dangerous or infectious types. According to Bruce Oilwort, these countries are particularly found in sub-Saharan Africa, but are also found in Latin America, the Middle East and South Asia, and especially in India’s neighbors such as Nepal and Sri Lanka, which have to deal with severe epidemics.

The trend of Govt cases in Africa “Very, very confusing”, Michael Michael Ryan, the person responsible for emergency situations at the WHO, was also rated for his role with the prevalence of infectious types and dangerously low vaccination rates.

For now, Kovacs partners are trying to approach the most important level for the period from June to September. He noted that the United States had promised 80 million doses in the June-July period, but that most of the billions promised by the G7 would not be available until later this year and especially in 2022.
