The Central Bank of Azerbaijan (CBA) sold $67.4 million to the local banks at the foreign exchange auction held with the participation of the State Oil Fund of Azerbaijan (SOFAZ) on January 21, 2021, Trend reports citing the country's CBA.

The demand from banks at the auction increased by 1.5 percent compared to the previous indicator and was fully met.

At the end of the auction, the weighted average rate of the manat to the US dollar amounted to 1.7 AZN / USD.

The first foreign exchange auction for a long time was held with the participation of SOFAZ on March 10, 2020, during which Azerbaijani banks purchased $323.2 million.

The CBA began to conduct currency auctions through a one-way sale of currency in a competitive environment from mid-January 2017.

In March 2020, it was decided to hold extraordinary currency auctions due to the increased demand of the population for foreign currency amid the failure of the OPEC + deal, which led to a sharp drop in oil prices.

The World Health Organization (WHO) does not recommend using the so-called "immunity passports" with COVID-19 vaccination data for the time being, WHO Representative to Russia Melita Vujnovic has told TASS, Trend reports.

"At this stage, WHO does not recommend the use of ‘vaccination certificates’ for travelers as there are many factors that have to be considered," she said. "Also, we are still in the early stages of understanding the complete immune response to COVID-19. The immune response will probably be more difficult than what can be determined by individually measures antibodies to COVID-19 at any given time. For that reason, WHO does not recommend the use of the so-called immunity passports."

European Commission head Ursula von der Leyen earlier said that the commission was going to present a draft unified COVID-19 vaccination certificate in March. According to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the EU heads of state and government are unanimous about the need to introduce digital vaccination certificates, and the EU members will seek to create them by the summer.
