    According to a report by the Oxfam charity, a small gourp of wealthy nations has already secured over half of the future supply of COVID-19 vaccines. It means that only 13% of the world’s population will initially have access to the sought-after drug. Max Lawson, the head of Oxfam’s “Inequality Policy division” says this is a consequence of pharmaceutical companies seeking to maximise profits.
