WHO Director-General, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, recently announced a target of vaccinating at least 10% of the population in every country by the end of September and 30% by year-end.

Vaccination coverage of over 80% percent is needed to significantly lower the chance that an imported coronavirus case could generate new cases or spawn a wider outbreak.
