An uneven distribution of Covid-19 vaccines can make the pandemic last 7 more years

Only 10 countries account for three-quarters of the 194 million covid-19 vaccines that were administered until the middle of February, a clear example that illustrates that the race to vaccinate the world is very unbalanced.

Until last February 25, no country in sub-Saharan Africa had received doses of vaccines. The first was Ghana who received 600,000 vaccines against Covid-19 thanks to the initiative Covax, a global alliance established to share vaccine doses with the poorest countries.

In this way, it became the first African country to receive vaccines thanks to the project promoted by the World Health Organization, which seeks to support 92 low and middle-income countries.
