Beyond our borders, the pandemic rages on. Among low-income countries, less than 10 percent of the population has been vaccinated. Ben discusses the risk of a “catastrophic moral failure”, according to the World Health Organization, if efforts are not made to make vaccine distribution equitable for all. He is joined by Dr. Alan Bernstein, President of the Canadian Institute For Advanced Research (CIFAR) and member of Canada’s pandemic vaccine task force, and Dr. Peter Singer, Special Advisor to the Director General of the WHO.
