The World Health Organisation (WHO) and United Nations Childrens Fund (UNICEF) have called for urgent actions to protect most vulnerable children from deadly measles and polio epidemics as COVID-19 disrupts immunizations.

The UN agencies made the call in a statement posted on World Health Organisation website.

According to the statement, the agencies have issued an urgent call to action as COVID-19 continues to disrupt immunisation services worldwide, leaving millions of vulnerable children at heightened risk of preventable childhood diseases.

Dr Tedros Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General as saying, COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on health services and in particular immunization services worldwide.

He says they need additional financial resources to safely resume vaccination campaigns and prioritise immunisation systems that are critical to protect children and avert other epidemics besides COVID-19.
