South African media reported on the current global distribution and injection of vaccines on April 10 local time, saying that the World Health Organization was shocked by the extreme imbalance between the current distribution of vaccines between rich and poor countries. It is reported that developed countries rush to buy vaccines, leaving poor countries with little access to vaccines.
The World Health Organization has set a goal of getting all countries to start vaccination on the 100th day of 2021. However, this goal has not been achieved. There are still 26 poor countries or regions that still do not have vaccines available. Developed countries account for 16% of the global population, but they rush to buy 49% of the global vaccines. Poor countries account for 9% of the global population, but they have only 0.1% of the global vaccines available.
South African media said that vaccines are becoming tools for developed countries to solicit money.
