London: In an interview, WHO senior advisor Bruce Aylward said that if rich nations think the pandemic is over, they should help lower-income countries get to that point as well.Aylward said that although the pandemic was nearing its conclusion, WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said it was now time to step back and think about the rest of the world.God has blood on your hands, he said.He also stressed that Biden has a problem domestically, since the United States has easy access to all COVID tools.

ACT-Accelerator, a collaboration between the WHO and other global health organizations to assist poorer countries in obtaining COVID-19 tools, is also in coordinating with the ACT-Accelerator.The campaign, which includes the vaccine-focused COVAX, has reached billions of people around the world, but has been chastised for failing to respond quickly enough.The initiative's budget already stands at $11 billion, with the bulk of the funding available $5.7 billion going towards vaccines rather than tests or therapies, Aylward said.
