US Should Boost Vaccine Donations

July 20, 2021

America should boost its donations of COVID-19 vaccines to developing countries, where lack of ready supplies is driving ever-higher disease numbers, according to a writer at National Review. Similarly, the bioethicist R. Alta Charo says in an Issues interview that the United States hasn’t done enough, but she also sees why there have been hurdles. “Politically, I understand that it is very hard to place the interests of people outside the country ahead of those inside,” she says. “But I think more than anything else, COVID-19 has really driven home the reality that disease does not recognize political borders.”
