COVAX and the UN currently do not even know which coronavirus vaccine they will use to vaccinate the population. This, according to MigNews, was announced by the doctor, head of the National Medical Chamber of Ukraine Serhiy Kravchenko.

At the same time, he noted that UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres had visited Germany the day before and during his speech he used the term "vacationalism", which refers to the fact that a big number of economically developed countries have ordered various types of vaccines in very large quantities.

"Yes, this is the first. He says that with this approach we will not overcome the pandemic in the world. Secondly,  the financial deficit of the COVAX program is now $ 5 billion. And the program for 2021 itself has a budget deficit of $ 20 billion. In addition, the UN Secretary General appealed to the economically developed countries to transfer this excess amount of vaccines to WHO for the implementation of the COVAX program. This suggests that COVAX and the UN currently do not even know what vaccine they will use," Kravchenko emphasized.

As we reported earlier, European Union nations have kicked off a campaign of mass vaccination of the population.

Vaccination would start across the EU on 27, 28, and 29 December 2020.
