COVID-19 will ‘come back to haunt us’ if we don’t vaccinate poorer countries

Former Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown has urged the West to vaccinate poorer countries.

He told Trevor Phillips On Sunday 70% of the West is fully vaccinated but only 2% of Africa is.

"It’s bad for them, it’s bad for us, because the virus will come back to haunt us from Africa with new variants that hurt even the fully vaccinated," he says.
