Calling out for COVID vaccine inequity, PATA CEO says it puts everyone at risk of new variants

Liz Ortiguera, CEO, PATA, has said that 2.8 Billion people have still not had the first vaccine – some are even medical front-liners. In a recent message, she quoted WHO Foundation, saying, “While people in high-income countries get back to the things they love, many in low-income countries remain restricted and vulnerable to infection. Vaccine inequity puts everyone at risk, with low vaccination rates creating the ideal conditions for new variants of COVID-19 to emerge. We are still seeing 1.5million cases of COVID-19 globally every day.”
