Rich countries on track to stockpile at least 1 billion surplus C19 vaccines - ONE

Rich countries are on track to stockpile 1.2 billion more doses of COVID-19 vaccine than they need -- enough excess doses to
vaccinate the entire adult population of Africa. In a report released today, anti-poverty activists at the ONE Campaign point an accusing finger at Australia, Canada, Japan, the UK, the U.S., plus the EU block of 27 countries. https://www.one.org/international/policy/rich-countries-on-track-to-stockpile-at-least-1-billion-surplus-c19-vaccines/

The COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t end with a vaccine. It ends when everyone can get one. But with over half of current and projected production doses of COVID-19 vaccines monopolized by a small number of wealthy countries, large swaths of the global population will be left unprotected and the virus wi...

More than 85 poor countries will not have widespread access to coronavirus vaccines before 2023 - Economist Intelligence Unit

More than 85 poor countries will not have widespread access to coronavirus vaccines before 2023, according to The Economist Intelligence Unit. Priority groups in rich economies will be inoculated by end-March, brightening the global economic outlook by mid-year, it said. But for most middle-income countries, including China and India, the vaccination timeline will stretch to late 2022, and in poorer economies, widespread vaccination coverage will not be achieved before 2023, if at all. #vaccinecovid19 #COVID19 #healthcare #economy #poorcountries #china #india

The rollout of coronavirus vaccines has started in advanced countries, but mass immunisation will take time. The EIU believes that the bulk of the adult population of advanced economies will have been vaccinated by mid-2022. However, this timeline extends to early 2023 for many middle-income countri...

North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons is the top international conflict concern for 2021, according to a U.S. think tank. An annual report by the Council on Foreign Relations on potential violent overseas conflicts where U.S. troops might be deployed said dangers posed by North Korea’s nuclear program have moved ahead of the threat of a highly disruptive cyberattack on U.S. critical infrastructure, which was the top threat in both 2019 and 2020.
