My hypothesis of the third dose, which now seems almost certain, has, however, further highlighted the differences in behavior between poor and rich countries.

In fact, wealthy countries where vaccines are now widely available will certainly experience significant economic growth in the near future if it is not imminent. This would not be the case for poor populations and the limited availability of vaccines, which would grow slowly. NOT. The coronavirus has affected the economy of the entire planet, significantly reducing its stability.

According to a new report from International Monetary FundThe scarcity of vaccines against the coronavirus for developing countries and poor countries represents a serious problem, facing a serious problem not only on the humanitarian and social level, but above all on the economic level. Lack of access to supplements risks not only slowing the economic growth of these countries, but also global, due to the collapse of the economies of some countries. In the report, the International Monetary Fund calls on the richer countries to share more doses with the poorer countries, as had already been widely requested in recent months, but unfortunately no adequate response has been given.
in relation to the development of economy of developing countries, The Monetary Fund reduced the growth of emerging economies by 0.4%, It was reduced to 6.3%. The most pessimistic forecasts are for India and several parts of Southeast Asia, including Indonesia and Vietnam. Indeed, in these regions, in addition to an increase in infections, there has been a significant increase in hospitalizations and hospitalizations. The vaccine prevents the spread of the most serious forms of contagion.
