Now Monkeypox is a new challenge, a race is held in many countries with the vaccine

New Delhi . After the corona epidemic, monkeypox has now become a new problem for people around the world. The demand for vaccines to protect against this virus has also increased.

While companies are competing to make vaccines for this virus, on the other hand, countries around the world are competing to outdo each other to buy it. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 35 countries are struggling to get 164 million doses, leaving low-income countries behind in receiving vaccines.

Meg Doherty, director of the WHO’s Global HIV, Hepatitis and Sexually Transmitted Infection Programs, says developed countries are ordering millions of doses of its vaccine amid ever-increasing cases of monkeypox. This will have a direct impact on poor countries. Therefore, to avoid this, there should be an equitable supply of vaccines. If inequality is not removed, then it is difficult to eliminate this virus completely. Bearer, a member of the Lancet Commission, said there had been warning signs about monkeypox for five years, but no country took it seriously.

Most cases are coming in African countries, but there is neither vaccine facility nor any relation with WHO. Now this virus has spread to six to 76 countries. He said that the vaccine was prepared after talking with Japan. There were also 100 million doses of smallpox vaccine, but the number of these vaccines is very small in view of the increasing cases. According to the WHO, 98% of the people most affected by monkeypox are men who have sex with men. There have been about 20,000 cases of monkeypox in 78 countries. At the same time, five deaths have also been registered. PLC/GT
