The Covid pandemic will "go on for a year longer than it needs to" because poorer countries are not getting the vaccines they need, the World Health Organization (WHO) says.

Dr Bruce Aylward, senior leader at the WHO, said it meant the Covid crisis could "easily drag on deep into 2022".

Less than 5% of Africa's population have been vaccinated, compared to 40% on most other continents.

I wish we had offered vaccination to health-care workers in poor countries, but we can't even get all fat Americans to agree to take the jab!!

Population of Africa is 1.216 billion

So 5% is what about 6 million

Sorry not good at maths ,

And you can bet your bottom dollar who received the vaccine .....

Take care all 😷😉💉

Yeah, you are off by a factor of ten.  Easy to do.  More like 60 million, almost 61 million.

CNN: India delivers 1 billion Covid vaccines, but millions are yet to receive a single dose.

Why does this not surprise me?  Could we be smelling a "cull"?


And it would be nice if we could all pretend there will be a handle on Covid by the end of next year.  But with news like this, it is unlikely.
