    At least now it is time for health professionals to drive the COVID-19 response. By the way, as WHO does not manufacture any vaccine Sri Lanka needed to talk to the manufactures. The talk of talking to WHO is just wasting time. The EU, US, Canada is already started the vaccination program. The worlds have and have not are exposed now.

    The main question is when not which vaccine. Get it ASAP from any place We are beggers and cannot be chosers

    WHO is struggling to run is own organisation after the US withdrew financial funding. Asking WHO for free vaccine is like asking a tortoise for feathers.

    Begging, begging, begging around the world for vaccine. Does this country no longer have any self-respect? The army should force the Mafia family to pay for the vaccine for Sri Lanka with the looted money.
