3

The World Bank has said it will cost Ghana a minimum of $180 million to procure COVID-19 vaccines against the virus for 60 percent of the population.

The $180 million to procure COVID-19 vaccines projection is based on the World Bank Health Organisation (WHO) protocol, which requires that countries vaccinate a minimum of 60 percent of the population.

Pierre Frank Laporte, the Country Director of the World Bank who spoke with the Daily Graphic said the bank was willing and ready to provide the amount for the government by April this year when an official request was made to fight the pandemic.
