The first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine was not yet provided to the citizens of over 130 world countries, including the most vulnerable as UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay stated.

“When vaccination campaigns were announced across the globe, the world breathed a sigh of relief. Without solidarity, we are far from achieving this goal, and over 130 countries have yet to receive a single dose and the most vulnerable, so far, are not protected,” she stated.
