Western pharmaceutical conglomerates have resorted to a bold denialist narrative that should make most contemporary “genocide deniers” blushб Stephen Karganovic writes.
Western “big pharma” profit imperative and patent controls inevitably mean that poor countries will always be last on the list to receive supplies of vaccines on a consumer-commodity basis. The wealthier nations are as usual taking the lion’s share. Some estimate that at present rate, it won’t be until 2024 when African nations will be fully inoculated.
The government should never have granted Moderna a monopoly over our vaccine. The best time to license the people’s vaccine to generic manufacturers was months ago. The second best time is right now.
“Instead of spending on innovation, Big Pharma is hoarding its money for salaries and dividends,” the report says, “all while swallowing smaller companies, thus making the marketplace far less competitive.”
