Rich countries are buying enough Coronavirus vaccine doses to vaccinate their entire populations around three times. Meanwhile, at least 67 poorer countries are left with only one dose per 10 people by the end of next year, the People's Vaccine Alliance said on Wednesday.

“The hoarding of vaccines actively undermines global efforts to ensure that everyone, everywhere can be protected from COVID-19,” said Steve Cockburn, Amnesty International’s head of economic and social justice.
