WHO nods the Production of Vaccines in Africa

The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced that six African countries have been granted technology to develop mRNA vaccines to address the continent’s scarcity of Covid-19 vaccines. Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa and Tunisia have been chosen as the first recipients of technology from the World Health Organization’s global mRNA vaccine hub.

The idea is to ensure that the African continent can produce its own vaccines to combat Covid and other diseases. Vaccine makers have faced criticism from public health officials and some government leaders for not sharing their formulas and patent protections to get more people vaccinated against the virus, which has killed more than 5 million people. What do you make of this selection of countries?
