AKIPRESS.COM - Turkey plans to offer its domestic vaccine to all humanity under the most appropriate conditions when the work on the vaccine is completed, the nation’s president said on Tuesday, Anadolu reported.
The vaccine issue has taken a dire turn, nearly 100 countries have no access to the COVID-19 vaccine yet, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in his video message, addressing the meeting of Financing for Development in the Era of COVID-19 and Beyond held by the UN with the participation of heads of state and government.
The COVID-19 outbreak has once again revealed the distortions in the global system that we have expressed on almost every platform, he underlined.
Referring to the unfairness on the access to the vaccine, Erdogan said the injustice, becoming more evident during the pandemic, has taken a much dire turn with the issue of vaccination.
One candidate, developed by Turkey's Erciyes University, will enter Phase-3 trials by the end of April as the last volunteer will get the second dose on April 9, Turkey's Health Minister Fahrettin Koca said last week.
