Who is Blocking Poor Countries from Receiving Vaccines?

With fewer than 3 billion SARS-CoV-2 vaccine doses administered worldwide and COVID-19 ravaging countries such as India and Brazil, U.S. physicians seek help for other countries battling COVID-19. Plus, how this ongoing tragedy will affect America. Biden-Harris on May 5, came out in favor to bring together several countries to share vaccines with those countries who are unable to afford or organize vaccines for their population. However, in EU, Germany is opposed to the waiver needed to help the developing world, as are opposed to any such arrangement, as are Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Lori Wallach joins Thom Hartmann to discuss why the opposition in Europe could cause a vaccine variant starting in the developing world and spreading everywhere.
