Turkey plans to offer the world its Covid-19 vaccine
Ankara, Mar 30 (Prensa Latina) Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced his country's to offer the world its own SARS-CoV-2 vaccine, as per the capital's press reports.
According to the Anadolu agency, Erdogan pointed out that Turkey plans to offer a national vaccine against the disease under appropriate conditions, as soon as development works are completed.
For the Turkish president, the issue of vaccines to combat the advance of the Covid-19 pandemic becomes complicated and so far about a hundred countries lack access to the vaccines.
In a video addressed to a meeting on financing for development in times of the pandemic and beyond, organized by the UN, the statesman drew attention to inequalities in the world for the application of vaccines.
While some countries have already immunized nearly all of their populations, billions of people around the world have been unable to receive the first dose, he considered.
Erdogan confirmed that it will be difficult to achieve an economic recovery in the countries without a general immunization process. For this reason, states that have excess vaccines can contribute to others, he commented.
Although the president promised that the total vaccination of the country's population will end by May or June of this year, a total of around 14.5 million out of a population of more than 83 million have been immunized so far.
