People to get vaccinated in first part of 2021 - WHO

World Health Organization (WHO) Health Emergencies Programme Executive Director Mike Ryan (pictured) asserted on Wednesday that "realistically" people could start getting vaccinated in the first part of 2021.

"We are making good progress on coronavirus vaccine, we are not losing vaccine candidates," Ryan said at the WHO's video conference. According to him, the global community and the WHO "need to be fair when it comes to access to vaccines" as "they are not for the wealthy, nor for the poor, they are for everyone."

Ryan reiterated the importance of timely and efficient testing, noting it's impossible to "fight the virus blindfolded and not having testing is like fighting the virus blindfolded."
