The World Health Organization (WHO) believes that the Covid-19 pandemic will not end until at least mid-2022, when each country can potentially vaccinate 70% of its population, Newsweek reports.

"WHO Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has announced a global goal of vaccinating at least 10 percent of the population of each country by September. Ghebreyesus hopes to reach 40 percent by the end of the year, and then 70 percent by the middle of next year," the newspaper writes.

The pandemic will continue until the majority of the world's population has immunity, which is achieved precisely through vaccination. "(The pandemic - ed.) will end when the world decides to end it, since the decisions are in our hands," said Gebreyesus.

According to the Our World in Data project, as of today, more than a billion people are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 in the world, which is 13.6% of the world's population. Vaccines are not evenly distributed, however, with mass vaccination rates approaching 70% in the United States, and an average of 1% of people in poor countries have received at least one dose of the coronavirus drug.

The next wave of coronavirus infection continues in the world. According to the chief sanitary doctor of Ukraine Igor Kuzin, in autumn Ukraine will return to the "red" quarantine zone. Now the main task of the authorities is to vaccinate the population. So, on July 21, the fifth stage of immunization began in the country: now every adult can get vaccinated.
