Worldwide: rich countries buy coronavirus vaccine, and Microsoft buys TikTok
The wealthiest countries lined up for coronavirus vaccine:
- United States
- United Kingdom
- European Union
- All this countries have agreed to purchase 1.3 billion doses of the coronavirus vaccine that has yet to be developed.
Bloomberg reports this with reference to a study by the analytical company Airfinity. GlaxoSmithKline Plc, Japan — with Pfizer.
The European Union is also «aggressively disposed»
to procurement, the agency notes, but does not specify with whom the European countries have entered into an agreement.
Thus, despite the fact that the effectiveness of vaccines against the new type of virus has not yet been proven,
a significant number of them have already been reserved by rich countries
and, most likely, the number of deals will only grow.
Analysts point out that doses may not be enough for 7.8 billion people, and poor states will be «last in line.»
A similar situation was in 2009, when rich countries monopolized the supply of the swine flu vaccine.
The American company Microsoft in the coming weeks will begin and no later than September
15 will complete negotiations with the Chinese ByteDance on the purchase of the popular
TikTok application; other US companies may also participate in the deal as minority shareholders, Microsoft said.
Donald Trump has announced in the past that he plans to ban the TikTok app in the US.
According to authorities, ByteDance may transfer personal information to Chinese authorities through this app.
TikTok says it has never shared information with the PRC authorities and is not going to do so.
