Desigualdades globales en vacunación contra Covid-19

December 13, 2021 - A dos años del inicio de la andemia de coronavirus, ligeramente más de la mitad de la población mundial ha recibido al menos una dosis de vacuna Covid-19. Son embargo, más de siete de cada diez de esas inoculaciones se han aplicado en los brazos de personas de países de ingresos alo y alto-mediano.

Less wealthy countries are relying on a vaccine-sharing arrangement called Covax, which originally aimed to provide two billion doses by the end of the year but has repeatedly cut its forecasts because of production problems, export bans and vaccine hoarding by wealthy nations, The New York Times said.

This has led to a striking divide between regions of the world. Africa has the slowest vaccination rate of any continent, with just 12 percent of the population receiving at least one dose of a vaccine.
