In today’s Big Story podcast, less than one percent of the 1.8-billion Covid-19 vaccines used so far have gone to low-income countries. And in those countries new variants are emerging that could impact our vaccine efficacy. Canadians spent the first four months complaining about our slow rollout, but we’re soon to be second in the world among countries with the highest percentage of people receiving at least one dose.

This is vaccine inequity in action. And it’s not someone else’s problem. Today, when experts tell you “the pandemic isn’t over until it’s over everywhere” … here’s what they mean.

GUEST: Dr. Ananya Tina Banerjee, McGill University

  1. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  2. Howdy! I know this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask. Does running a well-established blog like yours take a massive amount work? I’m completely new to blogging but I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
