WHO criticises rollout of coronavirus vaccines in Europe as being unacceptably slow

The World Health Organization (WHO) has criticised the rollout of coronavirus vaccines in Europe as being unacceptably slow. It also says the situation in the region is more worrying than it has been for several months.

In a statement, WHO director for Europe Hans Kluge has said, Vaccines present our best way out of this pandemic. He said, the rollout of these vaccines is unacceptably slow and is prolonging the pandemic in the wider Europe region.

Mr. Kluge stresses that the countries must speed up the process by ramping up manufacturing, reducing barriers to administering vaccines, and using every single vial have in stock, now. Vaccination campaigns in much of Europe have been hit by delays and the number of infections is rising.

The EU has been criticised for the pace of its vaccination programme, only 16 per cent of its population has received the jab, compared with 52 per cent in the UK. According to media reports, only 10% of the nearly 900 million people in the region have had a single dose of coronavirus vaccine. Some 27 countries of the more than 50 included in the WHO Europe region have implemented partial or full coronavirus lockdowns.
