Sisi: coronavirus vaccines in Africa ‘far less’ than actual needs

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said at fourth edition of the G20 Compact for Africa Summit on Friday that the coronavirus vaccines available across Africa are far less than the continent’s actual needs.

Speaking via videoconference, Sisi called for more international cooperation mechanisms, whether at the bilateral or multilateral levels, to increase the capacity of COVID-19 vaccine production and for fairer distribution of the shots in the continent.

“A matter that necessitates an international cooperation in producing and distributing the vaccines as an important matter for the African and the world economy to rebound,” the Egyptian president added.
