The pandemic has caused so much in people’s lives globally. So many lives were lost because of the new virus. Many people suffered, millions of people lost their work and livelihood. And yet as the new year enters we are still left uncertain about the pandemic. The pandemic isn’t just yet over. Millions are still at risk and hundreds of thousands more can die from this. We weren’t ready for this. Mankind is very anxious about the vaccine for COVID 19. The announcement of the vaccine coming gave hope to billions of people. All are looking forward to its protection.
The problem we are encountering this new year is its distribution. The politics involved in it is also another problem. This is what faces every nation. Who gets the vaccine first? Is there enough for all the people in the world? Governments are coming up with contingency plans on how to acquire the vaccine. We are not talking of hundreds but millions of vials. Some countries are struggling to raise funds for this. The people in every nation asks, who pays for them? Of course for most nations this will not be given for free. The vaccine is very important so people will be protected. Once the vaccine is our economies around the world will recover. However, we must remember that no vaccine has ever been proven to provide man with complete immunity but still mankind is hoping to have a dose of the vaccine because it gives them hope and this is a realization for everyone that good health is their priority.
