This is a digital only ThinkIn.
The consequences of vaccine inequality are unequivocally terrible. The Delta variant has been catastrophic for the unvaccinated populations of poorer countries – tens of thousands of people are dying needlessly everyday. Vaccinating the world against a highly-infectious (and evolving) virus was never going to be easy, but the moral case for doing so far outweighs the undoubtedly complex logistical and economic challenges it would entail. Mobilising world and business leaders, not to mention the general public, relies on communicating the urgency in the clearest possible terms. Join us for a ThinkIn with a very practical aim: to come up with the total number of preventable deaths that will happen if we don’t close the global Covid vaccine divide now.
