Sumary of Africa slammed by third wave as vaccinations languish under 2%:

  • CAIRO/ISTANBUL — A third wave of coronavirus cases has hit Africa as the highly contagious delta variant continues to spread, all at a time when less than 2% of the population has been fully vaccinated.
  • Many African countries lack the funds to purchase the vaccines that they need, relying on the COVAX global vaccine-sharing scheme.
  • and aid organizations in France, Germany and the U.S. said in late June that they would support contract manufacturing of vaccines by providing 600 million euros ($700 million) to South African drugmaker Aspen Pharmacare.
  • Even in regional industrial power South Africa, just 8% have received at least one shot, and those who have been fully vaccinated are in the 3% range.
  • But with fewer PCR tests being conducted on the continent, the African tally is thought to miss many cases.
