World Health Organization insisted on February 09, 2021 that Astra Zeneca s
hots should not be denied. According to WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, people must not start concluding that the vaccine does not work.
” We mustn’t start concluding that this vaccine (AZ) doesn’t work at all. What we’ve seen is data from a small study; it’s indicative, it is telling us we need to collect more data. We need to study it more. But from all the available evidence, AZ vaccine and all the other vaccines that have been approved so far reduce d
eaths, reduce hosp italization, and reduce severe di sease. and that’s our goal for the first part of this pandemic is to reduce mor tality, to end all preventable deaths.“— Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, WHO Chief Scientist
Meanwhile, Richard Hatchett, the CEO of Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) said during an interview that the vaccine is a very important part of the global response to the current pandemic.
Dr. Michael Ryan (WHO Executive Director) also said, “the data on all of the vaccines and all the situations, they’re working to do that. We may need second and third generations to do more… right now we have the tools… by adequate control of the disease at community level, and by the use of vaccines to protect the most vulnerable and our frontline health workers.”
