WHO slams 'shocking disparity' in access to vaccines

The World Health Organization hit out on Tuesday at the "shocking disparity" in access to coronavirus vaccines, with only four countries in Africa able to meet their inoculation targets so far. The WHO secretary-general said that "the vaccine crisis illustrates the fundamental weakness at the root of the pandemic: the lack of global solidarity and sharing". And that included the sharing of information and data, biological samples, resources, technology and tools, he said.
