Solidarity needed to win Covid-19 fight

2 February 2021

Dr Alex Awiti, Vice Provost of the Aga Khan University in Kenya, writes that in the fight against Covid-19, the world is faced with a triple whammy: Inequitable distribution of vaccines, incapacity to roll out vaccination programmes and virulent virus mutants. It is perfectly alright for nations to purchase vaccines and to vaccinate their citizens. But there is a moral obligation for countries, especially the wealthy nations, to come together in solidarity to support poorer countries to procure vaccines and vaccinate their populations.
