Do western economies hold the COVAX sharing scheme’s key to success?

Published

on

Western economies can feel the end of the pandemic is in sight… but things look grim for many other parts of the world.

UNICEF and World Health Organisation chiefs are calling on G7 countries to donate more COVID-19 vaccines to the global COVAX supply

The show is back on for London theatres… reopened to live audiences.

People can sit indoors in pubs and even hug each other again.

It’s the biggest lift of coronavirus restrictions since the start of the UK’s successful vaccination campaign.

Although things seem well for most developed countries like in the UK, the grass isn’t greener on the other side.

The World Health Organisation director-general says the world has reached a situation of “vaccine apartheid”,

The chief is urging Vaccine makers to speed up COVAX jabs…sooner than planned.

This follows a severe shortfall, following a curb on exports from India.

So far…The US makes up 20 per cent of the nearly 1.4 billion jabs given worldwide.

Where as Africa’s three most populous countries – Nigeria, Ethiopia and Egypt, home to more than 400 million people – each account for just 0.1 per cent.

Developing countries are seeking ways to bridge that gap.

President Joe Biden said the US will send at least 20 million more COVID-19 vaccine doses overseas by the end of June.

Western countries have been slow to share their doses, even among themselves. 

But are world leaders now using their country’s vaccine supply as a diplomatic tool now the pandemic situation at home… is on the way up.

Putin threatens West with nuclear strike

Published

on

Russian President Vladimir Putin has issued a direct threat to employ nuclear weapons against the West, accusing NATO and the United States of preparing to strike Russia.

Putin delivered this ominous warning during his annual address to the nation, raising global tensions to unprecedented levels.

During his speech, Putin accused NATO and the US of deceptive maneuvers, alleging their intentions to launch an attack on Russian territory.

He emphasised Russia’s readiness to defend itself, boasting of its modernized nuclear arsenal and asserting the capability to defeat any potential aggressors on their own soil.

The Russian leader’s words carried a chilling reminder of the destructive power at his disposal, stating, “They have to understand that we also have weapons, weapons that can defeat them on their own territory.”

Such rhetoric underscores the grave risk of escalating conflict and the potential catastrophic consequences of nuclear warfare.

Nuclear war

Putin warned that the deployment of troops to Ukraine by NATO countries could lead to a real risk of nuclear war.

He emphasised Russia’s determination to strengthen its military presence in response to perceived threats from neighboring nations aligning with Western alliances.

In addition to military concerns, Putin criticized Western efforts to engage Russia in an arms race, vowing to bolster Russia’s defense capabilities while accusing the West of attempting to weaken the country economically and politically.

Despite escalating tensions and global condemnation of Russia’s actions in Ukraine, Putin sought to rally support domestically, praising Russian unity and resilience in the face of adversity.

He portrayed Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine as a defensive measure to safeguard national interests and protect Russian citizens.

Putin’s aggressive stance towards the West underscores the deepening rift between Russia and Western powers, raising fears of a potential conflict with far-reaching consequences.

Published

The Federal Aviation Administration has issued Boeing a 90-day deadline to devise a comprehensive plan for enhancing quality control procedures after a recent incident involving a 737 Max aircraft.

Less than two months following an alarming occurrence where a door plug blew out of a 737 Max aircraft just nine minutes into an Alaska Airlines flight, the FAA has demanded Boeing to present a thorough strategy to address quality control deficiencies.

The incident, which took place on Flight 1282, revealed that essential bolts required to secure an unused door panel on the nearly new aircraft were missing, according to a preliminary investigation conducted earlier this month.

The door plug had been removed and reinstalled at Boeing’s Renton, Washington, factory where the 737 Max is manufactured.

This incident adds to a string of production issues plaguing Boeing’s flagship aircraft.

Action plan

In response to the FAA’s directive, Boeing affirmed its commitment to developing a comprehensive action plan with measurable benchmarks.

The aerospace giant assured that its leadership is fully dedicated to meeting this challenge head-on.

FAA Administrator Mike Whitaker emphasized the need for Boeing to implement substantial and enduring improvements, emphasizing that foundational changes will necessitate ongoing commitment from the company’s leadership.

The FAA intends to hold Boeing accountable at every stage of the process, ensuring that mutually agreed milestones and expectations are met.
