The whole world is struggling with the corona epidemic. Due to the increasing infection in India, many countries have banned flights to and from their destinations. But there are many countries in the world except India which are currently Corona hotspots. In many countries including Iran, Turkey, and Brazil of South America, the infection is taking frightening form.
Turkish Health Minister Fahretin Koka says that it will take at least two more months for us to arrange vaccines. The biggest reason for the lack of vaccines in the world is that rich countries have stocked vaccines many times more than their population.
According to the WHO, barely one out of 500 people in poor countries have been vaccinated. While one in every four people in rich countries has been vaccinated. At the same time, apart from vaccines, there is also a shortage of oxygen, chemicals, ventilators and medicines in poor and middle-income countries.
Rich countries stock vaccines, so vaccine shortages in the world
• 30 percent of deaths are due to corona in poor or middle-income countries.
• 9.3% of deaths were due to corona till last month in poor and low-income countries of the world.
• 87% of the vaccines have been bought and kept by rich countries.
