Apsnypress – Abkhazia’s public representatives of the public in Abkhazia call on the government authorities to appeal to the Russian Federation and international organizations – WHO and other UN structures, as well as the co-chairs of the Geneva Discussions – with a request to provide Abkhazia with vaccines to protect the population of the country.
Almost the entire world is facing a crisis caused by the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Almost every day, the new cases of coronavirus claim its victims in Abkhazia. Given the small number of our people, is it necessary to talk about a disaster that the pandemic has turned into for our country. Doctors fight with all their might for each patient, all the resources of the health care system are involved, public organizations, volunteers and businessmen make a great contribution to organizing treatment for patients.
However, all this is a struggle with the grave consequences of the virus, leading, in most cases, to a severe, painful course of the disease, which not everyone is destined to cope with – even with professional help. Today we understand that it is much more important to stop the virus than to fight it after it has entered the human body. After a year and a half since the beginning of the pandemic, we can confidently say that humanity has not yet developed anything more effective to protect the health and life of people than vaccination of the vast majority of the population. Countries that have managed to carry out vaccination on such a scale have mostly returned to normal life, and people did not lose their loved ones, like they did in wars.
We all very much hoped that the vaccination problem could be solved with the help of the effective Russian Sputnik-V vaccine, but providing the required number of doses for the population of Abkhazia turned out to be a difficult task. Since the pace of vaccination at the present time cannot solve the main problem – stopping the deadly spread of the virus in Abkhazia, there has been an increasing number of proposals to address this issue to international organizations as well.
Therefore, we consider it our duty to urge the Government of the Republic of Abkhazia to address both the Russian Federation and international organizations – WHO and other UN structures, as well as the co-chairs of the Geneva Discussions – with a request to provide Abkhazia with vaccines, that have proven their effectiveness, in order to protect the population of our country.
In order to stop the spread of the pandemic in our republic and win the difficult fight against the virus, we will try to organize a timely and full-fledged vaccination process in the name of the life and health of all residents of Abkhazia.
