The coronavirus vaccine may be a good news for rich countries – but it may take years before poorer ones can access it. A recent report from The Economist show that 600 millions of doses – that's half of what can be produced by Pfizer by the end of 2020 – have already been purchased by a dozen of rich countries. The rest of the world mostly relies on COVAX – an alliance created by WHO – to develop and distribute a vaccine. The scheme has planned for 500 million doses to be acquired and distributed. Though the participating countries will each receive their share, this number means that they will only be able to inoculate a fifth of their population.
