There is still ‘a long fight against the pandemic,’ said Borrell at the meeting on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on geostrategic relations and the global economy.
Borrell claimed that the solution to the coronavirus-caused crisis ‘is vaccination.’
In his speech to foreign ministers of some 10 countries from Central Europe and the Balkans, Borrell urged to donate vaccines to poor nations since the lack of it will result in differences for recovery and more instability in the world.
The World Health Organization (WHO) Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus insisted on the unequal distribution of vaccines in the world and claimed this disparity ‘has no moral justification.’
Ghebreyesus pointed out that the new variants of the coronavirus are winning the race against vaccines and considered the fact that millions of health workers and caregivers have not yet been vaccinated as abominable.
On Saturday the European Union announced the distribution of Covid-19 vaccines to close July with 70% of adult population vaccinated.
‘We have sent enough vaccines to EU countries to fully vaccinate at least 70% of adults,’ the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen live-tweeted.
