In a statement concluding a meeting with the World Bank in Abidjan, he said African leaders hoped to receive “at least $ 100 billion” by the end of 2021 so that the continent could “rebuild itself well” after the health crisis caused by Govt.
“Much more needs to be done to tackle this global crisis. In fact, less than 3% of Africa’s population has been vaccinated for the first time, against about 54% in the United States and the European Union,” lamented Ivory President Alessan Otara.
“There is a clear goal: 40% of the (African) population will be vaccinated by the end of this year and 60% by the middle of next year. 2 Axel von Trotsonberg acknowledged that the Covit-19 crisis had created a “massive demand for funds.”
The meeting was attended by ten African heads of state to discuss World Bank assistance for the next three years.
