Overseas Network, June 16th.
"The Guardian", "Ireland Observer" and other foreign media recently published commentary articles about the leaders of the Group of Seven (G7) claiming to share at least 1 billion doses of vaccines with poor countries, and pointed out that this It is an exaggerated expression.
Foreign media said that the new crown vaccine will be able to cover the world sooner than expected due to China, and Western countries need to cooperate with China to achieve global coverage of the vaccine.
When can the world vaccinate 80% of the population with the new crown vaccine?
The answer for most people is 2023 or 2024.
Bill Emott, the former editor-in-chief of The Economist, published an article in The Irish Observer, saying that this shows that people are deeply pessimistic about the progress of vaccination outside of Western countries, which is why the G7 countries that have proposed to donate 1 billion doses of vaccines. "It appears to be a generous time course changer," but they are not actually credited.
Emott pointed out that the world now receives 33 to 36 million doses of vaccines every day, and China accounts for 17 to 20 million of them.
"The new crown vaccine will cover the world sooner than expected, mainly due to China's vaccine supply.
Emott believes that if Western countries could provide vaccine products faster, and provide more bilateral and multilateral aid funds to support the public health system and vaccine procurement, it could have solved the vaccine shortage problem in some poor countries.
The G7 countries want to provide 1 billion doses of vaccines according to their convenient timetable and plan to distribute them in 2021-2022, but the actual needs of poor countries are obviously more urgent.
"There is no doubt that China is the country that plays an important role in this process, and even a leading role."
Speaking of the commitments of G7 countries, Sophie Hinser, a researcher at the Chatham Institute, a British think tank, published an article in The Guardian, stating that this shows that a single Western country cannot provide the world with a vaccine.
Western countries have no choice but to cooperate with China to vaccinate the world.
Sincer said that in the past month, the international scientific community and public health institutions have confirmed an exciting result: China's vaccine is effective.
On June 2, the WHO approved Kexing to be included in the "emergency use list."
A few days ago, Sinopharm released the results of interim analysis of phase III clinical trials, putting the evidence of vaccine effectiveness in front of some skeptics in the West.
Subsequently, the international medical journal "Journal of the American Medical Association" published an article confirming that the Sinopharm vaccine is effective and sufficient to be widely distributed.
China's current supply of vaccines to foreign countries is done bilaterally.
Some media in the Middle East published reports on the front page, thanking China for its generosity, and also refuted those who doubted the effectiveness of China's vaccine.
Out of concerns about bleeding and thrombosis after vaccination caused by the AstraZeneca vaccine, most people in these countries and regions regard the Chinese vaccine as a "safer choice."
"The harsh truth that should not be overlooked is that in the early stage of the new crown epidemic, Western countries maliciously hoarded vaccines, making the WHO's new crown pneumonia vaccine implementation plan (COVAX) delays in achieving the goal of vaccinating 2.3 billion people before the end of the year. Sincer pointed out that China's vaccine factories can produce 3 billion doses of vaccine each year, but the United States is only "just getting started."
Sincer believes that the G7 countries must stop making false accusations against China. As far as vaccines are concerned, countries need to strengthen cooperation, not competition, and this includes cooperation with China.
Sincer specifically warned that if China continues to question the efficacy of vaccines in China, it may cause negative effects. "After a year and a half of the epidemic, the world is tired of arguing about the blurred line between evidence and politics. Global public health institutions must take care of it. Evidence and necessity are put in the first place, not geopolitical competition." (Wang Shanning of Overseas Network)
