WHO urged China to actively vaccinate the population against coronavirus

chinese with mild covihe level of vaccination of the population against coronavirus in China is insufficient and should be increased. Michael Ryan, Director of the WHO Emergency Management Program, made such an appeal at a briefing on Wednesday.

According to him, the level of vaccination in China is currently insufficient. "With such a large population and with such a large number of vulnerable people, the country really needs to focus on vaccination," the expert said.
At the same time, Ryan drew attention to the fact that China has recently made significant progress in this direction. "The vaccination rate has increased by 600% in the last week or two," he stressed.
Currently, Ryan drew attention to the fact that inactivated and viral vaccines are mainly used in China. "We believe that negotiations are currently underway between the Chinese authorities and at least one of the manufacturers of the mRNA vaccine to register the drug in China and organize production there," the expert said. "We do not participate in these discussions, but we support them."
An increase in the number of cases of coronavirus infection in China was recorded in early November, the vast majority of them were asymptomatic carriers of the virus. At the end of November, the country's authorities relaxed many restrictive measures to prevent the virus after demonstrations calling for optimizing the fight against COVID-19, writes TASS.
