Covid-19 vaccine procurement: how is Africa faring?

Designed to prevent humans from the Covid-19 pandemic, various vaccines have been acquired by several African nations. What can we learn from these campaigns on the continent? What challenges are they facing? The rest of this article will edify more on this important topic.

A brief review of Africa

87,000 deaths and 3 million 400 thousand cases of infection are the current death toll for Africa. These figures could rise to 100,000 deaths out of 3 million 600 million confirmed cases with a second wave looming on the horizon. Morocco, Guinea, Egypt, Mauritius and the Seychelles were the first countries to start vaccination campaigns. Mali, Senegal and South Africa have followed suit. Supervised by Mr. Macky Sall, Head of State, 2 billion 200 million CFA francs have been allocated for the acquisition of a total of 200,000 doses of the vaccine. In short, a sum of between 5 billion 800 million euros and 8 billion 200 million euros are intended to cover a campaign to vaccinate 1 billion 300 million Africans.

Some situations that are holding back vaccination campaigns on the continent

In Tunisia after the injection of the "Sputnik Vaccine" effects were observed in 81 of the health workers. A climate of distrust is being created with doubts among the population about vaccines. This situation is further exacerbated by the fact that 2400 doses of "fake vaccines" were recently intercepted on the continent. There are rumours that the vaccines will have serious health consequences and are the result of collusion between the UN, Westerners and Asian powers to slow down the population growth of the dark continent. The variant of the virus may be a cause of the various reactions after the injection, only awareness raising can help convince some Africans and especially the illiterate.

Recent technological innovations in the field of health

Science is constantly innovating to improve the delivery of medical services and the rapid cure of major ailments such as cancer and other dreaded diseases. So what are the latest technological innovations in health care? Are there any risks associated with these feats? The answers through this article.

The purpose of this research and its likely consequences

Quebec invests millions of US dollars in medical research, a figure boosted by the efforts made in this field by the private sector. This research is aimed at prolonging the life experience marked by recent innovations in the sub-field of genetics, targeted, then, at controlling the mutations and cellular activities that generate old age. These innovations aim to reverse these mechanisms from the age of 40 onwards in order to positively impact on old age. It is clear that these innovations will bear fruit, but what about the consequences. The human population will increase, famine and promiscuity will be more felt especially in Africa.

The latest technological innovations in this field

Despite this risk, several discoveries are very useful and timely. For example, the CCS implied (Canadian Cancer Society) is conducting trials to more effectively remedy breast and prostate cancers. There have been good results over the last ten years with increasingly effective treatments. In addition, research has shifted towards reducing the spread of Covid-19. In hospital, stretchers are equipped with trackers for optimal management of patient movement. Cabinets are equipped with "Radio Frequency Identification Technologies" for the management of health workers' uniforms. These uniforms are fitted with chips: it is impossible to handle those in stocks, which reduces corona virus contamination. Tele medicine has a bright future thanks to the development of ICTs. Finally, you must notice that medicine progress is so very much.

Not to mention British purchases of European products. After this rupture (the Brexit) the UK loses 4 billion 600 million euros. Like other nations, Holland is one of the UK's valued trading partners, will experience a loss of GDP by the year 2030 of between 1.25% and 4.25%. Australia's major companies have seen their revenues impacted by the delay of Brexit. Sales of pizza and grapes (juice) in the UK and the EU respectively are experiencing a drop in revenue. 20 million is lost over a 4 year period by shipping companies.

In addition, Meniere's disease manifests itself as intense vertigo, and the subject feels nauseous and vomits.
