Gebreyas said: “No country is yet out of danger. The delta model is dangerous and it changes over time which must be constantly monitored.

He urged world leaders to unite to ensure that by next year 70% of every country’s population is vaccinated against COVID-19.

He said: “This is the best way to end the epidemic, save lives, restore the world economy and prevent the emergence of dangerous forms. We urge leaders to immunize at least 10 percent of people in all countries by the end of September.
