The World Health Organization in its quest to promote transparency in the fight against the global pandemic Corona virus, has addressed the rumors going round that the Vaccine would only be available to the "rich" when it's out.


The Head of emergency programmes, Mike Ryan assured that the vaccine would be available to both the rich and the poor. Ryan disclosed this at an event on Thursday saying; 

And we need to be fair about this because this is a global good.Vaccines for this pandemic are not for the wealthy, they are not for the poor, they are for everybody.

Speaking on how soon the vaccine would be ready, he reassured that they are making progress in the right direction to find a vaccine but it would be ready during the first half of next year (2021). In his words he said; 

“We’re making good progress.“Realistically it is going to be the first part of next year before we start seeing people getting vaccinated,”
