By next year, there may be a shortage of about 200 million injection syringe in the world. This has been said in a report of the World Health Organization. It has been said in the report that due to corona vaccination worldwide, syringes are being used on a large scale.

According to media reports, so far more than 725 crore corona vaccine doses have been given all over the world. These include single, double and booster doses. This amount of vaccine is usually more than twice the total number of vaccines given in a year. A separate syringe is used for each dose, so syringe consumption has also doubled every year.

The mission to save from diseases will be slow

Corona vaccination may bring syringe crisis to the world, there may be a shortage of 200 million syringes next yearLisa Heidman, senior advisor for the WHO’s Division of Access to Medicine and Health Products, told the news agency, ‘Our real concern is that by next year we may have a shortage of syringes for vaccination. This can slow down the pace of vaccination. At the same time, it will also have a serious impact on efforts to save people from many diseases.

Could be the cause of global panic

The WHO report has recommended that there is a need to accelerate the production of syringes, as its shortage can lead to hoarding situations. At the same time, due to reduced supply of syringes, there can also be a panic situation at the global level. The supply of vaccines and syringes will also depend on the distance in the place of production and consumption.

It is necessary to work on an effective plan

Lisa Heidman said, ‘The signs of a lack of essentials are really disturbing. In the case of syringes, this shortfall can range from 100 to 200 crores. An effective plan should be made to deal with it in time.
