Rich countries need to donate COVID vaccines to African countries, says Ramaphosa

President Cyril Ramaphosa

President Cyril Ramaphosa said rich countries needed to donate vaccines to African countries, which were battling to obtain vaccines.

He was delivering a virtual address to the Global Citizen movement on Tuesday.

“And in this regard, I applaud and support what [French] President [Emmanuel] Macron and [European Commission] president Ursula von der Leyen have called for… that rich countries must donate 5% of their vaccines to needy countries, particularly on our continent – Africa.”

He also said countries needed to share: “Another important step is to enable the transfer of medical technology for the duration of the pandemic. This will allow us to increase the production of COVID-19 vaccines and other medical products.”
