As announced Friday during the G20 summit, drugmakers Pfizer and BioNTech will send 1 billion doses of their COVID vaccine to low-income countries this year and another 1 billion in 2022. The vaccines will be delivered free of charge to the poorest countries and sold at a reduced rate to nations defined as “middle-income.”

Johnson & Johnson promised to send 200 million doses of its vaccine to COVAX, a UN-backed initiative that strives for equitable access to vaccines. The pledge was great news for COVAX, which recently lost its largest supplier due to the worsening crisis in India.

To further assist developing nations, the EU has agreed to build at least 3 vaccination manufacturing facilities in Africa and donate 100 million doses to low-income nations by the end of 2021.

As reported by the New York Times, less than 0.5% of all COVID vaccines have gone to low-income countries.

“As we prepare for the next pandemic, our priority must be to ensure that we all overcome the current one together. We must vaccinate the world, and do it fast,” said Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi during the virtual summit.

Friday’s event was the first major summit focused on overcoming the coronavirus pandemic – which has killed millions – and preparing for future disasters. The commitments from Pfizer, BioNTech, and Johnson & Johnson are expected to mitigate the push from low-income nations to waive patent protections for COVID vaccines.

The proposal to remove patent protections, backed by President Joe Biden, would likely result in botched production, supply shortages, and less medical innovation by drugmakers.

  1. Rather than change their DNA and pollute their bodies, let’s give them Zicam and vitamin C. Clean their countries. But then again, their country is poor and over populated. Let’s make zombies who will kill each other.

  2. No mention of the responsible party doing anything to clean up the mess it created by turning the virus into a weapon and releasing it on an unsuspecting global population. The people of the world deserve the truth and moreover they deserve compensation. Once again the United States taxpayers foot the bill without any repercussions for the evil that exists in the guise of the Chinese Communist Party. No problem Biden will continue Obama’s policies of apologizing to the world for something the United States isn’t responsible for and the US will continue to play patsy for the evils that Communist China visits upon the entire world. We sit back and allow China to infiltrate our businesses our educational system and our politics without any admission or repercussions. Businesses as usual from an ineffectual leader in our own government. Biden is worse than an old dotard. He is complicit in his silence. Which is nearly as evil as the country that produced a biological weapon against all agreements globally. History will remember China and the Biden administration as evil and ruinous to the entire world. Sickening

  6. Thanks for the suggestions you have shared here. Something important I would like to state is that computer system memory requirements generally go up along with other innovations in the technological innovation. For instance, as soon as new generations of processors are introduced to the market, there is usually a corresponding increase in the shape calls for of both the computer system memory plus hard drive space. This is because the software operated by way of these processor chips will inevitably rise in power to take advantage of the new engineering.
