Vaccine Nationalism

Both the Pope and the head of the WHO are expressing concern that effectively the white supremacist in western countries will hog the vaccine for themselves. At this stage there isn’t enough available to even go around in the developed world, never mind in poor countries who don’t have the infrastructure to handle the low temp requirements of the first two versions anyway.

At the end of the day the first world countries need to “put on the mask” first so as to get their countries back to work so that they in turn can then help to finance the vaccine shortages in the poor nations. Imagine if you will the social media outrage of a mother putting on the oxygen mask first in what would surely be portrayed as an act of a horrible and selfish parent!

And that is all I’m going to say about that.
