Rabindra Dhungel, 7 september 2020. The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued a statement expressing frustration over the vaccine being developed against the corona virus. Many countries around the world are currently in the final stages of corona vaccine testing.
According to the WHO, even 50 percent of vaccines that have reached the advanced stage of clinical trials are not effective. The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that it does not expect the world to receive the required dose of vaccine by 2021.
Margaret Harris, a spokeswoman for the World Health Organization, said many coronavirus vaccines were in advanced clinical stages around the world in Geneva. However, he said there was no evidence that it was fully effective for any vaccine.
He warned that comprehensive vaccinations could not be expected until the middle of next year. The third phase of testing is taking a long time because Harris said he wanted to see how serious the vaccines are against the Corana virus and whether they have any side effects.
The chances of herd immunity are low
Earlier, Dr. Michael Ryan, the World Health Organization’s head of emergency affairs, warned against hoarding immunity. He says the world’s population is not even close to developing the necessary immunity to stop the spread of the virus.
Heard immunity is not a solution and what we need to see is no such solution. Most studies so far have shown that only 10 to 20 percent of the population is immune to the disease, and that those individuals may be the ones helping to develop herd immunity. However, herd immunity cannot be obtained at such a low antibody rate.
The head of the WHO said the UN health agency would not recommend the use of any of the Covid-19 vaccines until proven safe and effective. However, China and Russia have begun using their vaccines without extensive results.
WHO chief Tedros Adaname Gebreisus said the vaccine had been used successfully for decades. He mentioned that it has contributed to the eradication of polio and smallpox. He emphasized the need to reassure the public that the WHO would not support any vaccine that was not effective and safe.
Ted Ross, director of the Center for Vaccines and Immunology at the University of Georgia, said the corona vaccine, which was initially developed, may not be as effective. Ted Ross himself is working on a vaccine for the corona virus that will reach clinical trials in 2021. Some other researchers have suggested that the same strategy should not be used to develop vaccines.
88 vaccines are in the pre-clinical trial phase in laboratories around the world. Of these, 67 vaccine manufacturers will start the first clinical trial only towards the end of 2021.
