The World Health Organization, WHO has unveiled plans on the supply of COVID-19 vaccines.
According to the Director-General of the WHO, Tedros Ghebreyesus, the initial supply of the vaccines will be limited.
He revealed that health workers, older people and other at-risk populations will be prioritised.
The WHO Boss expressed optimism that the move will reduce the number of deaths.
He added that the supply will also enable health systems to cope.
However, he added that the virus will still have a lot of room to move.
In a tweet on Monday, Ghebreyesus said the Organization knew that a vaccine would be essential for bringing the pandemic under control.
Meanwhile, he emphasised that a vaccine will complement the other tools and not replace them.
Ghebreyesus stressed the need to continue Surveillance, Testing, isolating and caring for cases.
Other measures include tracing and quarantining contacts, engaging communities and encouraging individuals to be careful.
