Wednesday, June 16, 2021

The High Risk- Low Priority paper says that COVID-19 is now surging in poorer countries which are ill-equipped to contain the virus, but have access to just three per cent of global vaccine doses. These countries host over forty million of the world’s forcibly displaced people, who as a result, are being left out of the extremely limited vaccination campaigns that host countries can deliver.
