s the US is in full swing of summer and the CDC recently announced that ~45.5% of adults are fully vaccinated, we as a country are in a very fortunate place compared to where we were just last year. In Africa the same cannot be said. Vaccine rollout has not had the same sense of urgency or funding as the US. As of late, BBC reported that vaccine shortages have caused major roadblocks in getting the vaccine to Africa. The same article reports that “only about two doses of vaccine have been administered per 100 people, compared with an average of 68 doses per 100 in high-income countries”.
The slow speed of vaccination along with a dulled sense of urgency to receive it has created a potentially dangerous situation in Mali due to the contagiousness of the Delta Variant. The World Health Organization has reported this variant as the “fastest and fittest” for good reason. This of course makes those who are unvaccinated at a higher risk of falling in and spreading it.
GAIA Vaccine Foundation is hoping to continue to support the Covid-19 supplies needed in Mali. This includes PPE supplies, food for our healthcare workers, and testing opportunities. As we all know, testing is an incredibly important tool in combating Covid, and for $125 you can supply the testing patients need in Bamako, Mali.
Your support is truly appreciated and seen. Thank you for continuing to follow along as we work to support those who are battling Covid in ways we are not. Working together we can continue to fight this pandemic!
