World Health Organization does not foresee mandatory vaccinations being introduced around the world to stem the spread of the coronavirus.
WHO has said that information campaigns and making vaccines available to priority groups such as hospital workers and the elderly would be more effective, as a global tally of COVID-19 cases has crossed 66.42 million.
WHO’s director of immunization vaccines Kate O’Brien said there may be some countries or some situations in countries where professional circumstances require it or highly recommend to be vaccinated.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has informed that WHO wants to visit China as soon as possible to study the origins of the new coronavirus. We are planning and hope to be on the ground as soon as possible, he added.
