Vaccine must be available to the poor, Pope says

15

Pope Francis has said the world’s poorest people must have access to a coronavirus vaccine if one becomes available.

“How sad it would be if access to a COVID-19 vaccine was made a priority for the richest. It would be sad if the vaccine became property of such-and-such nation and not universal for everyone,” the Pope said during his general audience.

The pandemic “has uncovered the plight of the poor and the great inequality that reigns in the world”, he said.

“On the one hand, it is imperative to find the cure for a small but terrible virus, which is bringing the whole world to its knees,” he added.

“On the other hand, we must cure a great virus, that of social injustice, inequality of opportunity, marginalisation and lack of protection for the weakest.”

  1. Thanks for the useful information on credit repair on your web-site. The thing I would offer as advice to people will be to give up a mentality they will buy at this moment and pay back later. As being a society most people tend to repeat this for many factors. This includes family vacations, furniture, plus items we really want to have. However, you must separate a person’s wants from the needs. When you’re working to fix your credit score you really have to make some trade-offs. For example you possibly can shop online to economize or you can click on second hand suppliers instead of highly-priced department stores to get clothing.
