WHO Says Africa's Thin Vaccine Supply to Drop 25 Percent
世卫组织称非洲疫苗供应将减少25%
World Health Organization Africa director Matshidiso Moeti says that Africa will get 25 percent fewer COVID-19 vaccine doses than expected by the end of 2021.
世界卫生组织(简称WHO)非洲区主任玛特世蒂索·莫提表示,到2021年底,非洲获得的新冠肺炎疫苗剂量将比预期少25%mM8Yi=[.mEVxcC7s+

African health officials were surprised by the announcement that the COVAX effort to give vaccines to low-and middle-income countries is again lowering its delivery expectations. The United Nations runs the COVAX plan, which was organized to make certain poorer countries get the vaccine.

Moeti told reporters that the announcement was "in part because of the prioritization of bilateral deals over international solidarity."
莫提对记者表示,宣布这一决定的“部分原因是双边协议优先于国际团结m.Z^^a3;~;~bN_!&X。”
Moeti noted that certain COVAX difficulties, such as export controls on vaccine doses and the introduction of booster shots by some countries, are the reasons for the 25 percent reduction. A booster shot is an extra amount of a vaccine given to provide added protection against a disease.
莫提指出,新冠肺炎疫苗实施计划遇到的一些困难,比如疫苗剂量的出口管制和部分国家引入加强针,是疫苗供应减少25%的原因qEDd=sp|;233W。加强针是额外注射的疫苗剂量,旨在提供对疾病的额外保护2Bb*Md^taMEYF
Moeti noted that COVAX has delivered over 5 million vaccine doses to African countries in September. But, she added, "three times as many doses have been thrown away in the United States alone" since March.

"If companies and countries prioritize vaccine equity, this pandemic would be over quickly," Moeti added.
莫提补充表示,“如果企业和国家优先考虑疫苗公平,这场疫情将很快结束6JdzZH[+x[hO。”
The WHO says the goal of vaccinating 10 percent of people in Africa by the end of September will not be met. The aim, now, is to vaccinate 40 percent by the end of the year.

Nkengasong said he fully understands that people with weak natural body defense systems against disease need to increase their protection. But for "otherwise healthy individuals, I just haven't seen enough science," he added.

African countries have recently seen a strong increase in COVID cases, driven mostly by the delta variant. But the WHO Africa director reported a decrease of nearly 25 percent in new cases at the beginning of the month. She said that is "the steepest drop in eight weeks since the peak in July."
