The World Health Organization (WHO) said that ‘Kovacs’ can provide vaccines to all countries despite the low availability of anti-Kovid-19 vaccines and increasing demand for it in India. The World Health Organization (WHO) said in a press release that Kovacs could supply at least two billion vaccines in 2021, with Kovacs announcing new agreements with vaccine manufacturers to meet this goal. Kovacs, a global initiative to provide anti-Kovid-19 vaccines worldwide, has so far provided life-saving vaccines in more than 100 countries. It first supplied vaccines to Ghana on 24 February 2021.
So far three vaccine manufacturers AstraZeneca, Pfizer-BioNotech and Serum Institute of India (SII) have supplied more than 38 million vaccines on six continents. Out of the 100 countries that have been given vaccines, 61 countries are included in 92 low-income economies.
The WHO said on Thursday that Kovacs aims to provide vaccines to all countries that requested them to supply vaccines in the first quarter of 2021. However, there was a slight delay in the supply of vaccines in March and April.
