Proposal to name the variants in Africa after pharmaceutical companies that won’t waive their vaccine patents.

you do know that eg Sierra Leone, Malawi and Uganda burned and gave away massive amounts of vaccine because the people dont want to get vaccinated? There is a big communication problem. They cant find enough people even for the small amounts of vaccine they received. Patents are a problem but not in this case.

yes the continent gets to little vaccines but at the moment there is a problem to get the people vaccinated and it is not to the amount of vaccines or patents, at the moment.
