I find it highly disturbing that the measures taken in the United States, for the hoarding of drugs and vaccines against the COVID-19,” he told Efe professor Lawrence Gostin, Director of the Institute of Global Health at the medical faculty of Georgetown Law.
The u. s. government devotes billions of dollars to to get potential vaccines and treatments for the Pandemic.

$ 1,600 Million Novavax
The “Operation Warp Speed“this week, its biggest order to date: $ 1,600 million Novavax, a pharmaceutical Maryland almost unknown, which is the development of a possible vaccine against the COVID-19 by the end of this year.
There are many reasons to believe that the management of Trump share to vaccines in an equitable way and important drugs to combat the pandemic. Operated, according to their platform, America First, and it seems clear that you want to secure the largest part of the global production. This power draw will be higher if the United States says the first to receive the vaccine,” Gostin.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute for infectious diseases and a senior epidemiologist in the country, believes that United States Of America you should have access, in the year 2021, in order to immunize the over 200 thousand doses to produce its population against SARS-CoV-2, which corresponds to 40% of the global production of seasonal flu vaccine is much cheaper and easy.
This makes me think that the pharmaceutical companies that the aid in exchange for commitments on the part of Washington, including the giant, AstraZeneca, to be put under pressure to all of his or her efficiency in the service of the United States.
