President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) urged the WHO to act with rectitude, without political or ideological tendencies, with adherence to science and impartiality and grant certification to vaccines – as CanSino and Sputnik V– that have been shown to be effective against COVID-19 and they have not generated any health problems.
“It is remembered that they say they introduced a chip … No, no, no, they are universal human rights and the WHO must act impartially”
“We have just agreed, we are going to ask the World Health Organization (WHO) to finish giving the certificates to pharmaceutical companies around the world, which have delivered vaccines, which have proven their efficacy and have not generated any problems of health.
“Let the WHO hurry up, because it has been in the process for a long time and there are vaccines that still do not have their authorization and that have been applied, that you have saved lives and the most important thing is that there is no report in the world of what has caused damage, the WHO has to act with rectitude, without political or ideological tendencies and with adherence to science “.
In his press conference, in the National Palace, AMLO was questioned about vaccines CanSino, from China, and Sputnik V, from Russia, which do not have the endorsement of the WHO, after the United States indicated that it will open the border with Mexico from November only for people vaccinated with the biologicals approved by the international body.
López Obrador asked the WHO to decide on the certification of all biologicals against COVID-19, because by practical judgment, the vaccines have been applied and they have helped, they have not harmed, “Why is the certification not given, why haven’t they come out to argue that these vaccines are not suitable or convenient, why so much delay?”
AMLO said he would send a letter to the director of the WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, with the urgency of approving vaccines that do not affect the population.
“That is my point of view because a long time has passed and this does not have to do with partisan, ideological, political factions, this has to do with science or how do you see it? Or do you think that whoever gets a vaccine Can a pharmaceutical company change its mind? It is remembered that they say they introduced a chip … No, no, no, they are universal human rights and the WHO must act impartially. “
