Müller at G20: Preventing vaccine disadvantage

Development Minister Gerd Müller (CSU) has appealed to the group of the 20 most important industrialized countries to stand up for a fair distribution of corona vaccines at their meeting this weekend in Rome. “The G20 must do everything to prevent the poorer countries from being further disadvantaged,” he told the Rheinische Post. “While the rich countries are buying vaccines away from the world market for booster vaccinations, 90 percent of Africans do not even have the first vaccination,” criticized Müller. Not even the health workers are fully vaccinated there. The risk of mutations increases unnecessarily. Manufacturers should also change their approach and bring forward deliveries for the international Covax initiative.

The Vice-Chairwoman of the Ethics Council, Susanne Schreiber, said – also in the Düsseldorf “Rheinische Post”: “Even if severe courses are less common in children, hundreds of children will be affected by complications if there are severe infections.” And: “An eye-to-and-through mentality is not enough here.”
