The World Health Organization has directed many criticisms recently to rich countries, speaking of their cause of a "catastrophic failure" in combating the outbreak of Corona, criticizing the significant increase in the gap between the number of Corona vaccines in rich and poor countries, describing it as a global "moral outrage".

In this context, the World Health Organization referred in its recent statement to the vaccination operations of young people in rich countries who do not face the risk of contracting the Coronavirus, such as elderly people, as the "very low risk" when infected with young people, and thus rich countries sacrifice the lives of the weak. In low-income countries.

In a related development, the Director General of the Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, expressed his shock and anger at the entry of the countries of the world into the stage of "catastrophic moral failure", as there is still no sufficient guarantee for the fair distribution of Corona vaccines in various parts of the world and among all countries.

On the other hand, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus explained that there is a big gap between the numbers of vaccines that were received in rich and poor countries and that the distribution process is unfair for Corona vaccines, as some countries vaccinate all of their residents, while there are countries that do not have anything yet.

He explained that the rich countries ’sense of safety under this behavior is a false one, because the more the Coronavirus spreads, the more likely new strains will emerge, and the more virus strains, the more likely they will outperform vaccines and the disaster.
