Covid: Charlize Theron wants fairer distribution of vaccines

Charlize Theron says countries have to start sharing vaccines if we are to reach the World Health Organization’s goal of vaccinating 70% of the planet next year.The actress, who has joined the social justice organisation Ford Foundation, wants the World Trade Organization to agree a waiver on vaccine patents – so countries can manufacture their own jabs. Speaking to the BBC’s Pumza Fihlani, Theron also questioned some countries’ booster programmes, when only 5% of Africa’s population has been vaccinated.
