In just one month, the "New Coronary Pneumonia Vaccine Implementation Plan" has distributed more than 32 million doses of vaccine to 61 countries.
At the meeting, Tan Desai called on countries that have already used the new crown vaccine on the WHO emergency list to donate as much of the new crown vaccine as possible to the "new crown pneumonia vaccine implementation plan."
The more countries that are willing to donate vaccines, the more vaccine doses they can share with countries that desperately need vaccines. In the coming months, hundreds of millions of doses of the new crown vaccine will be needed.
The World Health Organization stated at a regular press conference on the 26th that the investigation report on the origin of the new crown virus has been completed and will be announced in the next few days.
Peter Ambarek, head of the investigation team on the origin of the new crown pneumonia, said that completing and translating the 400-page report was a "painful process."
The WHO is currently conducting final verification with experts in related fields, and the public will see the full report in the next few days.

He also said: "There is a theory that the new coronavirus has spread in the Chinese community for a long time before it is recognized. If this theory is true, the transmission efficiency of the virus should have evolved to a stronger level."
