OXFAM FINDS RICH NATIONS HAVE ALREADY BOUGHT MORE THAN HALF OF WORLD’S VACCINE DOSES

According to Oxfam count, a handful of wealthy nations have bought up more than half of the potential doses of the most promising Covid-19 vaccines.

Rich countries, including the UK, United States, Japan, and Israel – representing around 13 percent of the world’s population – have bought 51 percent of the future supply or around 2.7 billion doses.

The rise in ‘vaccine nationalism’ continues despite warnings that more will die unless there is equal access to a vaccine globally.

The warning comes as the G20’s health and finance ministers meet on Thursday to discuss the pandemic amid rising concerns over so-called “vaccine nationalism”.
