As the world struggles with the corona virus pandemic, two different scenarios have emerged. In countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom, newly vaccinated people embrace their loved ones after a long separation. In India, poor families count the dead. As the number of new patients in the country reaches a new record every day, patients are sent back from hospitals that run out of beds and oxygen. However, the more widespread the virus, the more likely it is to mutate and, as a result, create variants that can resist existing vaccines, threatening other countries with a pandemic. At the same time, the situation in India, one of the world’s largest producers of vaccines, means that 92 poor countries, including South Africa and Brazil, have not been fully vaccinated for months or even years.
