On the 18th, a side event on vaccine equity was held during the 2022 World Economic Forum video conference.

At the meeting, Michael Ryan, head of the WHO health emergency program, said that people may never be able to eliminate the COVID-19 virus, and this virus may eventually become part of the ecosystem.

 

Ryan said that what people need to do is reduce the incidence and maximize the vaccination of the world’s population, which requires a more equitable distribution of vaccines.

Ryan said that more than half of the world’s population has now received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, compared with only 7% of the African population.
