Covid-19: Bill Gate recommends a particular vaccines for Nigerians

  • Wed Jan 27 2021


World richest Philanthropist Bill Gate has recommended a particular vaccine for Nigeria. He advised Nigerian Government not to use their limit health funds to purchase the very expensive Covid-19 Vaccines. He recommends that CAVI vaccines would be the best alternative for Nigeria, so that the proposed funds can be used for more important things. —————-> “The key is that Nigeria is still eligible (for GAVI Vaccinee), and so, for a lot of those vaccines, they will come through the GAVI facility that we’ve raised money for,” Gates said. ——————> Gates stressed that the impact of investing funds into the health system, particularly the primary health care system, would be very high in terms of saving children’s lives. ——————> “I’m an advocate for the government to have more resources and prioritise health. Obviously I’m not a voter in Nigeria, so Nigeria can decide that independently. ——————> “So my advice is that the primary health care system is what’s super important and that with those finite resources, you have to prioritise expenditure. —————-> “And in that case, waiting for the GAVI vaccines would be the best thing,” he said.—————> According to him, the deaths from the deficits of primary health care were dramatically higher every year than the total deaths going on in Africa from the pandemic. —————-> “So I hope it causes everyone in society to look at these health issues.————-> “There should be close to 100 per cent coverage of all the vaccines and you need to have those very functional primary health care systems because the number of lives you can save is absolutely huge,” he said.(NAN)
