UN COVID-19 Video: Message for “Galvanizing Momentum for Universal Vaccination” - UN Chief | United Nations


Related Videos On: Message for “Galvanizing Momentum for Universal Vaccination” - UN Chief | United Nations


Video message by António Guterres, Secretary-General of the United Nations, to the opening segment of the High-Level Thematic Debate entitled “Galvanizing Momentum for Universal Vaccination”. "Mr. President of the General Assembly, Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen, Let me begin by thanking the President of the General Assembly for convening this critical meeting focused on galvanizing momentum for universal vaccination. We have the tools and the know-how to end the COVID-19 pandemic this year. But we have a long way to go. We are nowhere near meeting the WHO [World Health Organization] goal to vaccinate 70 per cent of people in all countries by the middle of this year. Yes, over 10 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered globally. But this number masks the stark inequity in vaccine access. High-income countries have administered 13 times more doses per person than low-income countries. Eighty-five per cent of the people of Africa have not received a single vaccine dose. This inequity is a moral indictment of our times. It costs lives. It damages economies. And it gives the virus free reign to circulate unchecked and mutate, eroding hard-won gains and threatening the whole world. Ending the pandemic requires ensuring access to tests, vaccines and treatments for everyone, everywhere. In recent months, deliveries of COVID-19 vaccines have been steadily increasing. This month marked COVAX’s delivery of 1 billion doses to 92 low- and middle-income countries. But much more is needed. Galvanizing momentum means countries fulfilling and accelerating vaccine dose-sharing and donation commitments to COVAX with better quality of supply. It means manufacturers prioritizing and fulfilling vaccine contracts with COVAX, ensuring full transparency on monthly production and creating the conditions for the local or regional production of tests, vaccines and treatments. This includes pharmaceutical companies more rapidly sharing licences, know-how and technology. Regional production is critical for sustainable supply. It means significant investments in fragile health and economic infrastructure. It means donors and international financial institutions stepping up with the necessary support. And it means fighting the plague of vaccine misinformation. We have seen hopeful progress when supply is secured and predictable … when doses are donated with ample shelf-life … and when there is a deep understanding of what a country needs to accelerate vaccinations. Let’s build on that momentum together. In the coming days, weeks and months let us use every opportunity — through the G20, the World Health Assembly, the G7 and the General Assembly — to mobilize ambitious action to meet the WHO vaccination strategy targets and ensure no one is left behind. If we do it right, we won’t just end this pandemic, we will begin a truly meaningful effort to prevent future ones and build a safer, healthier world for all. Thank you."

Zikhona Madubela, a young entrepreneur in Khayelitsha township in Cape Town, is on a mission to persuade youth to wear masks and get a COVID vaccine. She meets scepticism, COVID fatigue and misinformation along the way. Zikhona listens carefully to young people’s concerns, then argues for the effectiveness and convenience of vaccines. As a successful business-person in the area, who runs a bakery in the township, she uses her influence and enthusiasm to help her peers. Just over a quarter of South Africa's 60 million population are fully vaccinated, and nearly 100,000 have died, out of almost 4 million COVID cases. The ‘Zwakala” campaign that Zikhona is supporting, is part of the “Verified” initiative, launched by the UN to promote life-saving COVID-19 information.

UN COVID-19 Video: Omicron Not a Mild Disease, Not the Time to Give Up - WHO Briefing | COVID-19 | United Nations


Related Videos On: Omicron Not a Mild Disease, Not the Time to Give Up - WHO Briefing | COVID-19 | United Nations


While Omicron infections on average “may be less severe”, WHO chief Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus warned that the “the narrative that it is a mild disease is misleading, hurts the overall response, and costs more lives,” as the variant continues to “sweep the world.” Speaking to reporters in Geneva today (18 Jan), Dr Tedros said there were more than 18 million reported cases last week. He said the number of deaths remains stable for the moment, but expressed concern about “the impact Omicron is having on already exhausted health workers and overburdened health systems.” He said while cases seem to have peaked in some countries giving hope that the worst of this latest wave is done with, “no country is out of the woods yet.” The WHO chief said he remained particularly concerned about many countries “that have low vaccination rates, as people are many times more at risk of severe illness and death if they are unvaccinated.” Dr Tedros underscored that Omicron is indeed causing hospitalizations and deaths, adding that “even the less severe cases are inundating health facilities.” He said, “The virus is circulating far too intensely with many still vulnerable. For many countries, the next few weeks remain really critical for health workers and health systems.” The WHO Director-General urged everyone to do their best to reduce risk of infection to help take pressure off the system. He said, “Now is not the time to give up and wave the white flag. We can still significantly reduce the impact of the current wave by sharing and using health tools effectively and implementing public health and social measures that we know work." WHO’s COVID-19 Technical lead, Dr Maria Van Kerkhove, stressed the need not to give up on the strategy in place to combat the pandemic. She said, “We're hearing a lot of people suggest that Omicron is the last variant, that is that it's over after this. And that is not the case, because this virus is circulating at a very intense level around the world. You will see in our weekly epidemiologic update that will be published in a few hours that there's another 20 percent increase in cases in the last seven days, with almost 19 million cases that have been reported to us. And again, that's a true underestimate of what is actually circulating around. And the deaths are holding steady around 45,000 deaths per week, and that shouldn't be happening because we have tools at hand." WHO’s Chief Scientist, Dr Soumya Swaminathan, said there was currently no evidence that healthy children or healthy adolescents need boosters. She said WHO’s technical expert body tasked with making policy recommendations, SAGE, has been and will continue to meeting to consider the specific question of how countries should “think about giving boosters to their populations with a view to protecting people, with a view to reducing deaths." Asked about COVID-19 transmissions to animal, Dr Van Kerkhove said a number of species that can be infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19. She said there was a possibility for what is called a “reverse zoonosis”, in which the virus “goes from humans back to animals, and then it's possible for the animals to reinfect humans.” However, Dr Van Kerkhove said the risk “remains low,” noting that it was still an issue WHO is constantly considering. She noted that as the virus continues to circulate, it has the opportunity to infect people as well as animals, and highlighted the importance of having “better surveillance” to know “not only which animals are susceptible, but to track this in animals over time."

UN COVID-19 Video: How can we end COVID? The UN’s global vaccine strategy


Related Videos On: How can we end COVID? The UN’s global vaccine strategy


70% of COVID vaccines have been distributed to the world’s ten largest economies, but the world’s poorest countries have received just 0.8%. This inequality is not only unjust, it poses a threat to the whole world. With large sections of the population unvaccinated, new variants, like Omicron, are likely to keep emerging. These new variants spread like wildfire and put everyone at increased risk. To end this destructive cycle, the UN says we must vaccinate at least 70% of the population in every country. The UN’s vaccine strategy is to achieve this goal by mid-2022. This will require at least 11 billion vaccine doses – but the task is doable. 8 billion doses have already been put into people’s arms, and globally, 1.5 billion doses are being manufactured every month. The real challenge is to make sure that sufficient resources are put into distribution. Shipments to poorer countries need to be vastly increased, financial support has to be given to struggling health systems, and the size of the vaccine taskforce must be increased. In short: no one is safe, unless everyone is safe.

Opening statement by Abdulla Shahid, President of the General Assembly, on Strengthening of the coordination of humanitarian and disaster relief assistance of the United Nations, including special economic assistance. "For those already on the precipice of humanitarian need, the pandemic may have been the final push. We know full well, with data from the World Bank, that hundreds of millions were forced into extreme poverty and food insecurity. Let us use the COVID-19 recovery to address these concerns. If we are talking about coordination, here, in the recovery from the pandemic, is our first port of entry to help millions of people. Second, vaccine equity must be prioritized above all else. We are facing yet another variant of COVID-19 that is a direct result of our inability to vaccinate the world. How many more variants will there be before one comes along that is more lethal, or entirely resistant to our vaccines? We risk going right back to square one and enduring yet more lockdowns if we do not move quickly to stop this pandemic. 2022 must be the year that we do this. Some of the poorest and most vulnerable countries are among the most underserved on vaccine access. Let us protect them; let us protect our world. Third, the pandemic, like so many other challenges, has unduly impacted on women and girls. We see this in the "shadow pandemic" of domestic violence, and in the fact that women and girls have been disproportionately impacted by socio-economic impacts, such as the loss of jobs and livelihoods, or of access to education. I encourage all Member States to prioritize the plight of women and girls in your considerations around humanitarian coordination and response. Fourth, we must not forget the larger climate crisis. The humanitarian community are also on the frontlines of climate impacts, responding to disasters brought on by hurricanes, droughts, floods, and other natural hazards that have seen an increase in intensity and frequency. Without action to address climate change, we will see only more climate-related disasters and more climate-related migration. Even if the world were to act now to address climate change, we can still anticipate decades of impacts due to our delays; it is imperative that the humanitarian and relief agencies are closely linked to efforts to support adaptation and to help prevent and prepare for natural disasters."
