BanglaHunt Desk: The World Health Organization (WHO) has taken a big step to combat corona infection around the world. They joined hands with 36 countries. Everyone will work together to make the COVIED-19 vaccine. Will help each other with information. Also, no one will have exclusive authority over Covid 19 tests and other drugs. It has been decided to work together.
The main reason for taking this step is to ensure that the ownership of drugs or vaccines is not limited to a particular country or a few countries. All countries can get this benefit. Most developing and small countries have joined hands with Hu in this agreement. The company has been named Covid-19 Technology Access Pool.
Costa Rican President Carlos Alvarado said: “Vaccines, tests, medicine, medicines and other important ingredients in the fight against corona should be identified as global public goods. No one has the right to do that. ” The proposal was first made in March. His purpose was to exchange information and thoughts about Corona. Only then will it be possible to quickly develop a vaccine against this epidemic. Hu made a request to all countries in this regard.
Tedros Adhanam, director of the World Health Organization, said: “Hu realized that if anyone wanted to hold a patent in this regard, it would be a loss to the world. All countries need to understand that if another country suffers, its effects can be felt in its own country. ” The move was welcomed by the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association. They have been told that this alliance must be maintained even after the end of the epidemic. Any new danger may come later. Even then, you have to be prepared in advance.
Anna Marriott, Oxfam Group's health policy manager, said that if all countries worked separately to eradicate the coronavirus, some would initially win but some would lose. So those who are not responding to this proposal are thinking of their own financial gain more than human health. This will not last long. Even if they make a profit now, it may cost a fortune in the future.
