GENEVA (Reuters) – A vaccine against COVID-19 may be ready by year-end, the head of the World Health Organization said on Tuesday.

WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus called for solidarity and political commitment by all leaders to ensure equal distribution of vaccines when they become available.

“We will need vaccines and there is hope that by the end of this year we may have a vaccine. There is hope,” Tedros said in final remarks to the WHO’s Executive Board, without elaborating.

Nine experimental vaccines are in the pipeline of the WHO’s COVAX global vaccine facility that aims to distribute 2 billion doses by the end of 2021.

The two-day board meeting, which examined the global response to the pandemic, heard calls from countries including Germany, Britain and Australia for reforms to strengthen the U.N. agency.

The best of the Muslim Times’ collection for war against Covid 19:

In this day and age, understanding bacteria and viruses and developing vaccines are national security issues. In my view sizable part of every country’s defense budget should be spent in these pursuits rather than making tanks and other weapons.

  1. Dear readers, Ladies and Gentlemen,
    Essalam ealaikum wa rahmatu Allah wa barakaatuh,

    Daily we read and live covid-19 fears and worries, some percentage infected , some recovered and some died.
    The situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina is as follow:
    The most important thing is that as at the beggining of the pandemic announcement , through all these months and even now, there are percentage of people who say alloud that ” this is nonsense, that such virus does not exist, that somebody is spreading lies , that we have to act against on- line models in school and companies. And why is that ? Whilo support such meanings , are they individual or organized , that hascto be descovered as it , individually or as a group, definitely ruins daily , hardly settled routine that we develop since beggining of the pandemic covid -19 .
    This is a true, no one likes such new conditions but ww cannot ler nin medical staff to make decisions and coment in public daily.
    If You have also recognized such opinions wirhin Your countries, Kingdoms, societies , as I asume You have , please find a way through media or individualy to warn those ind8viduals or groups that they should trust to such truly news even they are not nice .
    No one can take You right to protect if You are not going to loose a job and Your financial potentials.
    Coronavirus , from my point of view , is not going to last forever but ww have go do our best to lead it to the close end as soon as possible.
    How ? If we di not join groups , if we eat vitamines and stop smoking , if we do not go to unneccessary visits and if no one except closest family visit us,if our children attend on- line lessons at least until end of 2020 .
    Beginning of 2021 shall bring much better situations exoecting a mutation if virus covid -19 and all other covid sub branches.
    Viruses always existed in the past , but those whk were vaccinated since birth were less exposed to action of virus proteins and other organic element that keeos virus active against our health.
    Now it is a bit late , now it is not a time for vaccinations except those given to babies after a delivery .
    During pandemic it is strictly forbidden to proceede vaccinations gor all ages exceot new borns who not leave hospital at least 7 days after a birth !!!

    Whoever mention vaccination against covid-19 , it is still in a phase of testing on animals and only those extremly unserious will invite You to get vaccination.
    Pandemic will dissapear in few months in civilized countries .
    As we produce anti corona virus vaccination fir mass usage in following years , if it shows 99% it’s strong sides without aside effects or death cases, starting to be tested on elderly who are willing by their own will to be vaccinated , then WHO has , should include it in vaccination plan among all other vaccinations we get since our birth , but tge proper age of vaccination h a s to be clarified with no error at all , as with all other vaccinations we use to have since we were born, at least majority of us.
    Please, warn India , Pakistan, Siera Leon, where thrre were in last decades the highest percentage of NON VACCINATED inhabitants , who were through last decades attacked by serious illness where thousands of children in growing become disabled to walk and move. Such illness were irreversible and not possible to sane.

    I wish all of You good health and soon over of pandemic that does not happen often , so please
    accept and follows recomended measures and keep away from potential sources of virus at least
    two months more .
    You will be happy seing results, insha’aAllah.

    I remain with my greatest respect ,
    Yours sincerely,
    Delilla Custovic , Bosnia and Herzegovina

  2. …. 2 nd part ..
    I apologize for letter errors done in a hurry of typping but I am sure You were able to read and understand a point of a topic.

    Secondly , what I want to add is :
    Depends of vaccination plan in certain parts of the World, please be aware as I mentioned above that vaccinations are not recommended now during pandemic except new born vaccination.
    But , but in a case that your child , teenager has to be vaccinated by vaccine from ordinary vaccination program of Your country because your child is already late in vaccination programm or your child has got partly vaccination and really need to get a last portion of vaccine in order to fullfill vaccination action, then please, please , please !! Try to visit in advance Your pediatrician and explain about your idea and explain to medical doctor that you shall be in discipline.
    . If Your child is healthy you and your child have to be isolated in separated home , clean home if it is not your home at least 14 days and having no contact with anybody. Try to provide enough food for 14 days that you do not need to go shopping but just on a fresh forest air nextvto your home abd not using public traffic at all. If your chikd get a cold during isolation period , then you have to start it over again with isolation when chikd fully recovers.
    After 14 days gyou can taje youd child in already appointed term to ambulance , make anti covid -19 test with immediate result / or not neccesserily/ get ordinary vaccination in fuly desinfected premise , take your child back home to be isolated 14 days more until full recovery after cacvination and avoiding all all contact exceot with a parent from isolation period.
    First and second day after vaccination please give to your child big spoon of Paracetamol syrup two times a day and put wet cotton pad on vaccination glutea or arm muscle part. Change wet water cotzon pad every hour tgen remove next day. Wet watered cotton pad prevent inflamation and a pain of the vaccination zone / part of body.

    I wish You to care and to be smarter than covid -19 as virus we have to conquer by all our knwledge and effforts, patience.
