Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Monday (19/10), said 184 countries have joined the COVAX facility.

 

The program will finance the COVID-19 vaccine and distribute it evenly, to both rich and poor countries.

 

"The equitable distribution of vaccines is the fastest way to protect high-risk communities, stabilize health systems and promote a truly global economic recovery," Tedros said during a press conference in Geneva.

 

Ecuador and Uruguay were the last countries to recently join the COVAX facility, he said. (Antaranews)
