On a different topic and under the title “Corona’s Poor”, “Al-Khaleej” newspaper said, “The world is still living under the weight of the catastrophic Corona pandemic in terms of human losses and the worsening economic crisis, despite the efforts being made to get out of it, efforts that did not reach the required level, as a result of the policies of An immoral one based on monopoly and utilitarianism on the one hand, and nationalism that excludes those in urgent need of a vaccine, which exacerbates the impact of the pandemic in poor countries.
She added that the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, warned that the pandemic had plunged 100 million people in the world into poverty, and said: “Four billion people were left without social support, health care, or income protection,” due to the absence of international solidarity towards Poor areas, and conflict areas that need the most support and assistance. The Secretary-General pointed out that “the unfair distribution of corona vaccines is an outrageous moral issue,” and this crudely illustrates the vast differences and the deep gap between the worlds of the rich and the poor. This is because countries stockpile large quantities of vaccines, some countries impose export restrictions, and others buy more vaccines than they need.
She pointed out that estimates show that, in exchange for one person out of every four people being vaccinated against corona in high-income countries, one person out of more than 500 people in poor countries receives the vaccination, and this reveals the vast gap in the vaccination rate between rich and those countries. In humanitarian standards, this is an unethical behavior, and automatically leads to an increase in poverty in these countries that are already in extreme poverty, which prompted Guterres to launch his warning that the pandemic has pushed a hundred million new people to the bottom of poverty. And these will be added to the pre-corona poor, whose number is estimated at about 600 million people.
She stated that the World Bank, for its part, sounded the alarm, and expected the number of poor people to rise to an additional 115 million people, as a result of the effects of Corona, due to the unfair distribution of vaccines, the downturn in global growth, in addition to climate changes. The World Bank report indicates that children constitute half of the poor, women represent the majority of the poor in most regions, and half of the poor live in sub-Saharan Africa, and that most of the world’s poor live in semi-desert areas, or in areas at risk of flooding.
At the conclusion of its editorial, “Al-Khaleej” said: “If some countries think that they will be safe if they acquire the vaccine, or complete the vaccination of their citizens, then they are delusional, because the epidemic knows no borders, and it is in everyone’s interest to abandon selfishness, and consider vaccines a global benefit, because Ending the pandemic depends on vaccinating the entire population of the world.”
