A vaccine for the rich? Pfizer's COVID-19 Jab is almost impossible to distribute in poorer countries

A logistical "roadmap" from Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical has been released showing the staggering logistical feats required to transport and store the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, which has just been christened by Bloomberg as "the vaccine of the rich". Offering some more insight into details that have been the subject of much speculation on Wall Street, Bloomberg reported on this "complex and costly" private network that companies are building to help distribute vaccines like Pfizer's mRNA vaccine (a technology that's also being used by another leading candidate, Moderna), that is, once it has finally been approved. Countries that don't already have these networks will need to build them from scratch if they wish to substantially reduce the supply bottleneck, which would be "a herculean task" - source: Bloomberg, www.zerohedge.com
