WHO Urges More Countries to Join COVAX as Death Toll Exceeds 1M

One million people are confirmed to have lost their lives to COVID-19 but “the real number is certainly higher”, according WHO Chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

Tedros said that 167 countries have now joined the WHO-led COVAX global vaccines facility, representing 70% of the world’s population, adding: “and the list is growing every day.”

COVAX aims to deliver at least 2 billion doses of approved vaccines by the end of 2021 and to ensure “equitable access”.
