The CDC agency in Africa- which acts as a health watchdog in the continent has signed a memorandum of understanding with Pfizer to bring supplies of the pharmaceutical firm’s Paxlovid antiviral COVID-19 pills to the continent.
The agency is a unit of the African Union. The announcement comes within days of Moderna signing a deal with Kenya to build its first mRNA facility and a statement by South African drugmaker Aspen to sell, package and distribute Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines.
In October, Senegal and Rwanda signed an agreement with BioNTech for the construction of its first start-to-finish factories to make mRNA vaccines in Africa. Nkengasong said African countries should be using a combination of public health measures, vaccines, testing and other treatments namely the Pfizer one in their efforts to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic this year.
It’s shocking that there are governments who still say nonsense after all the evidence that is available on Pfizer’s criminality and sinister agenda.
