WHO says pandemic is probably going to drag on for at least another year

The World Health Organisation said that the Covid-19 pandemic is probably going to last for at least another year because poor countries still do not have the vaccine.

A spokesperson for the WHO said that the crisis is expected to drag on into next year because less than 5% of the Africa population is vaccinated while in other continues, more than 40% have been vaccinated.

Several countries are sending consignments of the vaccine to those in need, including the UK which has sent more than 10 million dosses to poverty-stricken countries.
