THREAD 🧵: Why is the world failing on #vaccines, despite ideals of charity, solidarity, or even self-interest - when no-one is safe until everyone is safe? Are new plans for local manufacturing and IP waivers enough?

In a new #OpEd for @SCMPNews, I set out to explain.
👇🏾
1/
To work out what is needed on #vaccines we need to go back 40 years ago to a key issue pointed out by the Nobel Prize winning Amartya Sen: That when people are hungry - in famine - that is not necessarily imply there is a food shortage. It's most often because of distribution. 2/
Right now, most countries in the world are facing a "vaccine famine". Just look at data for #Africa's 55 countries - current vaccines delivered can protect 2% of the population, at best.

Excess deaths in #Karnataka were nearly 6 times (5.77) the COVID19 death toll from April 2020 to May 2021. That's close to the undercount factor in Tamil Nadu (6.2). My colleague Sharath S & I find based on monthwise #CRS data from 2015 to 2021 (1/n) thehindu.com/news/national/…
Karnataka recorded an estimated 1,67,888 excess deaths over the baseline mortality for five years (2015-19) in the pre-pandemic years. Graph shows the excess deaths peaks both in the 1st and in the 2nd wave (2/n)
Here's a comparison with the estimated undercount factors in other States for whom a similar exercise was done. #excessdeaths. Karnataka and Tamil Nadu with an undercount factor of 4.7/6.5 were better off than A.P. (34) & MP (42) for similar periods (3/n)

"We urgently need safer air in schools"

Last month Profs. @ChemDelphine at CU, @marinavance at CSU, & I wrote an #OpEd published today by @ColoradoSun. We wanted to bring a team of #Colorado experts to call for action & advocacy wrt #K12 schools. (1/x)
coloradosun.com/2021/04/23/saf…
2/ "We encourage school districts to use stimulus funds to improve the indoor air quality of their schools. Use evidence-based strategies. Avoid technologies that have not been proven by peer-reviewed scientific research."
3/ "We encourage students, teachers, and the community to engage with district administrators and encourage them to leverage funds to support both the immediate and long-term health of students and staff."
