The young activist believes that it is totally unethical for rich countries to vaccinate young and healthy people against COVID-19, at the expense of people at risk in poor countries.
Mexico City (apro)-Swedish activist Greta Thunberg called on countries to redouble their efforts to combat inequality in the distribution of covid-19 vaccines.
The young lady believes that it is totally unethical for rich countries to vaccinate young people and healthy people with COVID-19 at the expense of people at risk in poor countries.
Thunberg described this as a tragedy. An average of four people in high-income countries were vaccinated, while only one in 500 people in low-income countries was immunized.
?? This is a moral test. Today we talked about showing solidarity, but vaccine nationalism is the driving force for vaccine distribution. He accuses that we only reveal our true colors when it comes down to the bottom line.
In this sense, he announced that he would donate US$120,000 to the World Health Organization Foundation to purchase vaccines against covid-19 through the COVAX mechanism.
The activist recalled that 75% of emerging diseases came from animals, and forest clearing and habitat destruction created ideal conditions for the spread of diseases from one animal to another.
?? We cannot separate the health crisis from the ecological crisis, nor the ecological crisis from the climate crisis. Everything is interconnected,” he concluded.
