The Bill and Melinda Foundation is putting an effort to distribute a Covid-19 vaccine by the end of this year or even come 2021 as the reports from Global Vaccination Alliance Gavi indicates.

According to the foundation, they have made a deal with world’s largest vaccine makers to supply 100 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine to the poor countries.

This will be a move that is aiming at supplying the readily available jabs to countries across Africa and some other westerners that are under low and middle income levels.

The deal by Bill Gates and Melinda was assigned to Serum Institute of India to produce a vaccine that will be costing $3 or less per dose when the jab becomes ready. This translated to approximately Ksh 325 per dose of the vaccine in Kenya.

Bill Gates has insisted that vaccine makers are making a good progress in vaccine development process. According to him, he has hopes that they will develop a safe and effective vaccine by the end of this year and in huge amounts to ensure that everybody is accessing them.

Meanwhile, experts have warned that Africa is facing a tough time in handling Covid-19 pandemic. According to them, the continent has registered a huge figure of Covid-19 but due to poor testing capacity they are able to recognize only a few Covid-19 cases (1 million).

The global health experts went further warning that cases are far higher several times than the million mark that has been reported.
