The World Health Organization (WHO) is asking Europe and the pharmaceutical industry to speed up the vaccination against COVID-19.

In the EU, only 2.5% of the population has received the first dose of corona vaccine, and the WHO is far from happy with the pace.

“We must work together to speed up the vaccination,” the UN organization’s European head Hans Kluge noted.

Conflicts between pharmaceutical companies and the EU, as well as logistical problems, have led to delays in vaccination. 

So far, the EU has approved the vaccines for Pfizer/BioNTech, Moderna, and AstraZeneca.

In an interview with AFP, Kluge expressed concern about the new virus mutations. He said he wasn’t sure if the vaccines countered all of them.

“That is the big question. I’m worried,” he noted.
