DUBAI, Jan 26 (Reuters) – Saudi Arabia’s finance minister said on Tuesday his country is talking to vaccine producers to provide vaccines to low-income countries such as Yemen and countries in Africa.
“We are negotiating with a lot of the vaccination companies to provide more vaccination particularly to low income countries,” he said during a virtual World Economic Forum in Davos.
He said Yemen for example and some of the African nations would not be able to get enough vaccines through the COVAX facility – the global pooled procurement mechanism for COVID-19 vaccines. (Reporting by Davide Barbuscia and Saeed Azhar; Editing by Alison Williams)
