Only 14% of the world will receive a Coronavirus vaccine
Some researchers conducted a study showing who will receive the Coronavirus vaccine in 2021, and the results were shocking, as described by the magazine “The BMG”, which is concerned with medical affairs.
The result of the study was that only 14% of the world’s population will receive the Coronavirus vaccine
This study was based on the applications submitted to obtain the vaccine from high-income countries, given that rich countries represent only 14% of the world, and therefore vaccines will not cover the entire world unless the quantities are increased by the companies that manufacture the vaccine.
Even if this mutation occurs, a quarter of the world’s population will not receive the vaccine until 2022
According to the “Sky News Arabia” website, the number of requests for the emerging corona virus vaccine has reached 7.48 billion doses.
These doses are sufficient for 3.74 billion people, mean two doses per person
America has the largest number of doses, with 800 million doses
It is enough for 400 million people, at two doses per person
Canada comes next, but Canada has requested a quantity that is sufficient for 5 doses for each of its citizens
It is worth noting that rich countries have purchased about 54% of the approved vaccines in the world so far
This may cause some concerns in some developing countries, which was rejected by Pfizer, the vaccine manufacturer, justifying that 64% of the vaccine will be from developing countries.
It is noteworthy that the Pfizer Corona vaccine has an effectiveness rate of approximately 95% and its dose is twice, 21 days apart.
The Corona vaccine of the American company Moderna has proven effective at a rate of approximately 94%, and its dose is twice, 28 days apart.
And US President Donald Trump stressed the priority of an American citizen before distributing or selling the vaccine outside the United States of America
