Morocco takes pride of place in the table of the vaccination campaign on the African continent. This achievement has just been recognized and praised by the World Health Organization (WHO).
During a press conference organized by WHO, Dr. Matshidiso Rebecca Moeti, regional director of the Organization for Africa, was clear: “Morocco is the most advanced country in immunization in Africa”. In its report made public Wednesday, the Moroccan Ministry of Health said that in total, 4,410,023 people received a first dose of vaccine and 4,038,083 others were administered the second, and thus considered to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
This recognition from WHO comes at a time when the kingdom is forced to slow down its campaign because it faces supply problems among vaccine producers. This is the case, for example, of India, the first vaccine producer country, which, faced with a second very violent wave of the pandemic and a reluctance of its population, recently decided to suspend the supply of the vaccine abroad, for the benefit of its population, which is over a billion inhabitants.
This performance of the kingdom is remarkable in an Africa which lags behind in the vaccination of populations. In addition to the lack of financial means, the continent is faced with difficulties for its supply due to the very strong pressure from developed countries.
