One-fifth of the world’s recordings are made in India. The country is also the largest exporter of COVID-19 vaccine worldwide.
There are fears that the need for vaccines in India to end the epidemic could affect other countries, which often receive less funding in the fight against COVID-19.
Why? About 30% of exports are manufactured in India, Sky News analyzes information from analytics company Airfinity.
Against, India then the largest seller at the level of COVID-19, his successor Germany, Russia and others White countries.
The Indian government has now temporarily banned the export of vaccines to end the epidemic.
Airfinity’s comments suggest that if India continued to ban the government, the country would have enough standards to vaccinate older people by November.
But this can lead to other shortcomings.
A Sky News analysis found that 35 countries relied on India for their jabs. About 98% of the recipients are from low or low income countries.
Some of these countries have not yet received a major share of the drugs already agreed with India – including Bangladesh, Myanmar, Saudi Arabia, Uganda, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka.
The evils of want go further. India also expects to release more than 80% of the $ 2.26 billion in COVAX – a 190-nation partnership aimed at providing access to 92 low- and middle-income economies.
But it is three out of five people have already been vaccinated In the UK, there are growing calls from a number of scientists for vaccinations being distributed worldwide.
“Another type of bias vaccine is appropriate. All [the US and the UK] they have done a good job so far and have fulfilled their needs for themselves, “says Dr Alberto Giubilini from the University of Oxford’s Collective Responsibility for Infectious Disease program.
He added: “Now he must continue to do the right thing, from now on I will be sharing the vaccine.”
Dr Julian Tang, a virologist at Leicester Royal Infirmary, believes that equal distribution of vaccines can help prevent new species coming out.
He said: “By sending a vaccine overseas to prevent the spread of the virus, you are not neglecting the health of your people. Instead, you are protecting the vaccine.”
The UK government says it is open for export in the future.
A spokesman for the government said: “The UK is sharing more coronavirus vaccines in the future with the COVAX scheme to help developing countries.”
But a severe shortage of vaccines has also led many countries to seek help from Russia and China, according to a new report by The Economist Intelligence Unit.
Vaccines produced by the two countries are cheaper than Western counterparts against low-income countries but often come with political and economic ties.
“The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are unaffordable in most developing countries,” said Agathe Demarais, chief of the global watchdog at the Economist Intelligence Unit. “Without COVAX, their only option is to turn to Russia and China.”
