Boris Johnson is concerned about poor countries
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has assured that if there is a surplus vaccine in his country, he will definitely give it to poor countries. Johnson’s statement is important. Just two days ago, UN Chief Antonia Guterres made it clear that rich countries have excess stocks of vaccines and this is a danger signal for the rest of the world, especially poor countries. This statement also has diplomatic significance. Russia and China are trying to dominate in some countries through vaccine diplomacy. China is targeting poor African countries.
Johnson also reiterated at the G7 conference that poor countries should be vaccinated. Joe Biden was also present at this meeting. French President Emmanuel Macron also said that rich countries should give five percent of the vaccine stock to poor countries.

Greece Vaccine Passport
The Greek government has made it clear that if the citizens of Britain want to come to their country as tourists, then there is no problem, but for this they will have to have a vaccine passport. The meaning of a vaccine passport is that tourists have to tell via online documents that they have got vaccinated before reaching Greece. Doses information will also have to be given in this. Before this, Denmark and Sweden have also taken this step.

Lowest cases since October
According to the news agency, the lowest number of cases were reported in the world last month after October. However, an alert has also surfaced. Maria Wayne Kerkhov, the technical head of the WHO said- Do not assume that we have reached a good time or are coming very soon. It is a little relief, nothing more. The infection may pick up again at any time and hence it is important to take precautions along with vaccination.
If we look at the world’s data, 3 lakh 51 thousand 335 cases were reported on Tuesday. This is also the average of the last seven days. In America, the pace of infection seems to be decreasing. This figure has reduced from two lakhs to around 77 thousand per day. The biggest reason for this is the acceleration in vaccination.
Only 10 countries have vaccine
According to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, there are 130 countries in the world that have not reached a single dose of the Kovid-19 vaccine. This is huge injustice. During the Security Council meeting, Guterres said – “We are very sad and angry that we could not even give 130 countries a dose of vaccine to deal with the epidemic.” At the same time, there are 10 countries where 75% of the vaccination process has been completed. This shows how unequal the vaccine distribution system is. If we have to overcome the epidemic, then in any case and at any cost, everyone has to provide vaccine.
