Covid19

In response to the news that the Oxford University vaccine shows 70% protection, Heidi Chow, pharmaceuticals campaigner at Global Justice Now said: 
  
“These results are good news, but with so much government funding for this vaccine, it is time Oxford University’s deal with pharma giant AstraZeneca was made public. Individual parts have been leaked to the media, but the deal itself has been kept secret, so we don’t know the legal framework for making the vaccine available to the world.  
 

Reacting to reports that early phase 3 trials of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine have been 90% successful, Heidi Chow, pharmaceuticals campaigner at Global Justice Now said: 

“It’s positive news that Pfizer may have found an effective Covid-19 vaccine, but right now it will only be for the few. We need governments to step in and make it available for the many – including by suspending patent rights.  

Some of the world’s richest investment banks and hedge funds are draining developing countries of urgently needed funds to deal with the coronavirus crisis, says a new report from a coalition of charities and campaign groups.
