WHO: 28 Billion Needed to Fight Coronavirus in Poor Countries

World Health Organization WHO says it will need $ 31.3 billion in the next 12 months to deal with the coronavirus outbreak in less prosperous countries.


The money should primarily be invested in testing, treatment of Covid-19 and the purchase of vaccines as they become available.

The WHO’s goal is to have a stock of 500 million tests and 245 million vaccines available by mid-2021, the organization said on Friday.

By the end of next year, those numbers should have increased to 2 billion vaccines, half of which will go to the poorest countries.
