As G7 ministers prepare to meet this week in Cornwall, U.K., there are renewed calls to increase global vaccine manufacturing, as well as rising concerns over a “two-track pandemic” favouring wealthier nations as vaccinations in poorer countries lag.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has long said that the pandemic ends when everyone is vaccinated against COVID-19, and it initially hoped to have 20 per cent of the global population inoculated by the end of 2021. That is looking less and less achievable, since 88 per cent of the world has not yet had a single dose, and delivering the vaccine to many populations in need is being hampered by politics and nationalism.

I'm about to play devils advocate.... 

Do you think that say ....

A county such as the USA has spent millions of taxpayers money to fund the development of a new vaccine,should expect said taxpayers to give vaccine's out to other countries,before their taxpayers are fully vaccinated.........???

And would the masses be happy with that ?? 

And who would you choose out of those "masses"to go without ??

In favour of some foreigner....???

My personal position is we're screwed...... LoL

Take care all 😷😉

This also raises an other ethical dilemma, as should one provide a gift of vaccines to a country that claims it does not have any cases, or very few cases?  


This dilemma applies to most of Africa as their official data says there is almost no covid in their countries. To provide a gift of vaccines to these countries is basically saying,"we know you are lying with your official data" which does not seem a very politic thing to do.



ps.  My personal view is that WHO and others should proceed in giving as many vaccinations as possible, because limited health care facilities and testing make it impossible for most poor countries to meet the WHO criteria for a 'positive case' (ie lab tested).
