Following a zoom conference with Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO) Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Sri Lankan President Gotabaya Rajapaksa says he believes the WHO will fulfil Sri Lanka’s need for 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine.
Had a useful zoom discussion with @DrTedros. I believe he will make effort to fulfil #lka need for 600,000 doses of #AstraZeneca for the 2nd dose of vaccination.
Globally, there is a need for 20 million doses of the #AstraZeneca for the 2nd dose.
