U.N. Secretary General Calls Vaccine Inequity ‘Stupid’

António Guterres, the United Nations secretary general, assailed the imbalance of Covid-19 vaccine distribution between rich and poor countries as he sought $8 billion to help narrow the divide.

We have no power to force companies to license or to make countries accept that the — the trips will not apply. We cannot force countries to organize their vaccination programs in order to take into account also the vaccination programs of other countries. If we leave it going on, and we allow for the virus to go on spreading like wildfire in the global south, there is a risk that when they, and that they can be very soon, there will be not Delta — it will be another variant that will be able to resist vaccines, and all the vaccination efforts made in developed countries, who vaccinated the whole of their population one, two or three times, all that effort will fall apart. And these people will not be protected. So not to have equitable distribution of vaccines is not only a question of being immoral. It is also a question of being stupid.
