Meghan Markle and Harry’s 2021 plans in tatters “As people sit in the room with you tonight, more than a third of the global population has received at least one dose of the vaccine.That’s more than five billion shots given around the world so far,” he said.

“It sounds like a major accomplishment and in many ways it is, but there is a huge disparity between who can and cannot access the vaccine.

“Less than 2 percent of people in the developing world have received a single dose at this point.And many of the healthcare workers are still not vaccinated.

“We cannot move forward together unless we address this imbalance as one.At the same time, families around the world are being overwhelmed by masses of misinformation across news media and social media, where those who peddle in lies and fear are creating vaccine hesitancy, which in turn leads to divided communities and eroding trust.

“That must include sharing vaccine science and supporting and empowering developing countries with more flexibility.

Where you are born should not affect your ability to survive when the drugs and know-how exist to keep you alive and well.”
