Let us not leave Africa out of the equation for stopping the advance of COVID-19 on this planet.
Africa has a population of 1.3 billion people, 18 percent of the world's seven billion citizens.
In the United States, we are now discussing a third shot, booster, while much of Africa has yet to get the first jab. Estimates are that only 5 percent of Africans have been fully vaccinated.
We must share this lifesaving vaccine with others who are desperately awaiting it.
Africa needs us now.
