It’s a puzzle. Seychelles has the highest COVID vaccination rate in the world, with 131 doses per 100 people. Over 70% of the people have received their first COVID vaccine, and 61% have received their second.
But now the 115 island nation located in the Indian Ocean is being overwhelmed with COVID cases and the country is returning to lockdowns.
I wonder what could be the problem?
The Daily Wire explains:
According to Bloomberg, Seychelles “acted quickly to begin vaccinations in January using a donation of Chinese vaccines from the United Arab Emirates.”
“By April 12, 59% of the doses administered were Sinopharm vaccines and the rest were Covishield, a version of AstraZeneca Plc’s shot made under license in India,” Bloomberg added.
Yes, over 59% of their vaccines came from Communist China.
I am not sure if this is related.
