I think that there are many expectations about the creation of the vaccine against Covid-19, and while it may help in the future, in the medium and long term, it is not a definitive solution. I do not want to sound pessimistic, not at all, rather I would like it to be possible to really solve this problem that we call a pandemic and all that it has brought with it, but, by managing to find a vaccine that works, which I really believe we are still a few months away from that reality, we will enter into another series of problems, but of a different nature.
How will this vaccine be distributed to all and not cause a problem either internally in the country that succeeds in developing it or in the other countries that will also need such development?
Let's take an example, I think they are more effective in making themselves understood:
- India, country with over one billion people, manages to develop the vaccine, Perfect, this is a great achievement. Now comes the next thing, the mass production of this, but on a very large scale. Because it's logical that most of the world's population will receive it, and we're talking about 8 billion people. To do this will be a feat, a great activation of the economy of that country, or perhaps not? but how long will it take to make that amount of vaccine? in addition to the distribution... important details.
- That is not all, they could be supported by many countries, and that is logical, because the cost would be immense, and it is difficult for a single country to do so without foreign aid. So the support could be humanitarian or simply say that the support goes hand in hand with benefits to get the first doses of vaccines out quickly. So, I think this puts India in a somewhat difficult situation (in this case hypothetical). Because shouldn't the main thing be its people?
Some may think that you should vaccinate your population first before you start distributing elsewhere, but would it be right for you to focus on yourself and ignore the growing need in other countries? Would this bring you some problems with countries that are trading partners?
We well know that at a global level, on the part of some powers, there are policies of intimidation that are based on certain economic pressures, it is of popular knowledge, I am not making it up
- I continue, we already have the vaccine circulating around the world, in a few months, most likely next year, not this one, at least I don't think.
The application of the vaccine has to do with the activation of the immune system, our organism has an almost immediate response, but that in the same way immunity against this specific virus is created let's say 10-15 days, in healthy, well nourished organisms? We know that in much of the world hunger due to the current crisis does not allow good nutrition in many, and this is a point against.
I'm concluding this reflective post, I'm not talking about absolute truths, but rather some possibilities of something similar happening, and I hope I'm totally wrong.
I'd like your opinion on that. You can leave it with me in the comments.
