WHO calls for Covid booster pause so those in poorer nations can be vaccinated – video

The World Health Organization has asked the world’s richest countries to delay rolling out booster shots to their populations before at least 10% of the world is vaccinated. 

‘We cannot accept countries that have already used most of the global supply of vaccines using even more of it, while the world’s most vulnerable people remain unprotected,’ said the WHO chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

The WHO said the moratorium would help towards the goal of vaccinating at least 10% of every country’s population by the end of September, and would help fight a pandemic that has killed more than 4.25 million people worldwide
