More than 100 countries have not yet started vaccination against Covid-19, says WHO


Despite advances in the global distribution of vaccines, 130 countries had not administered even one dose to 2.5 billion people as of the 5th, said the director of the WHO (World Health Organization), Tedros Ghebreyesus.

According to Ghebreyesus, the number of immunizations surpassed the reports of infections, but the distribution still leaves something to be desired. Only ten countries have administered more than three quarters of the more than 131 million vaccines already used in the world.

About 102.3 million doses have already been applied in the USA, China, EU (European Union) and UK. The remainder was divided among 63 countries. “About 130 countries, with 2.5 billion people, have not yet administered a single dose,” said Tedros.

Covax, a WHO-supported vaccine distribution initiative, urged wealthier countries to share doses once they finish immunizing their seniors and healthcare workers with high exposure to Covid-19.

"We also need a gigantic increase in production," urged the director of WHO. “Manufacturers can do more. As they have received substantial public funding, we encourage everyone to share their data to ensure global access to vaccines.”

Organizations against oligopoly

The organization Human Rights Watch has launched new questions about the contractual terms for the distribution of vaccines large manufacturers such as BioNTech/Pfizer and AstraZeneca.

The entity questions how much governments are paying companies and why. There are reports that the Ugandan government paid 20% more than South Africa and triple the EU.

One of the reasons would be the "artificial rationing" of supplies to doses, according to a report by the People's Vaccine Alliance. The investigation points out that Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca plan to produce doses for just a third of the global population.

As rich countries have purchased multiple doses of the vaccine, however, the actual number of coverage is much lower. Pharmaceuticals refuse to share their technology, despite public subsidies.

The attempt to overturn the formula's patent is in the WTO (World Trade Organization), under the leadership of India and South Africa. Brazil, a historic defender of generic drugs, does not participate.
