Why Covid-19 vaccine roll-out faces difficult questions: Editor Says Ep 5
Editor Says Ep 5: Why Covid-19 vaccine roll-out faces difficult questions
Synopsis: Every Friday afternoon, senior editors from The Straits Times give their take on the top news of the week, why it matters and what’s next.
The Straits Times editor Warren Fernandez says it has been a tremendous feat for Covid-19 vaccines to have been produced within a year, at warp speed.
But even as we celebrate, we need to take a sober look at the difficult questions which surround the vaccines.
Who should get the vaccine first, and why? Will getting a jab be a choice or a responsibility? Who should bear the cost? How can it be made at scale, and safely?
