Rome, March 29 – Israel and the United Kingdom They are going Epidemic Back, While EU member states are still at stake. It is a recurring mantra of the last few weeks, but a fact at the same time. In fact, we are talking about two nations that have already vaccinated a large part of the population and for this reason they do not leave sensational and unlikely for the defeat of Kovid in the wake of summer – can toast Huh. How is it possible that the European Union is so delayed? Compared to Israel and Britain? Analysis in this regard is sometimes bizarre.
Israel and United Kingdom defeated Kovid due to EU
In the first case, some simply point Tel Aviv has paid more to vaccine makersCompared to what is stipulated in European and American contracts. True, but it does not explain everything. In the second case, the greatest emphasis is that the London government depends on AstraZeneca, an Anglo-Swedish company that can only take the first and most important side of the United Kingdom (and Sweden). This is actually only partially true. However, in both cases, the analyzes are based on a basic misunderstanding, why Without the Tacit EU green light, the two countries considered a model in the vaccination campaign that would actually be further back than the EU. It is a paradox, yet it is so. Let’s see how things stack up.
8 million doses of Pfizer vaccine Ordered by the government of last November Israel (And well paid) Were produced in Europe. To be precise, at a Belgian factory in Purse. Same goes for The uk: With 32 million doses administered, 21 million were exported from the European Union. In general, approximately 170 million of these doses have been produced in Europe since 1 December 2020. 77 million were exported to non-EU countries. So less than half of the dose we have given to others. In addition, Europe is the world’s leading exporter of new generation mRna vaccines, which should give us an advantage, at least in the long term.
Failure to block the export of vaccines
If we had blocked exports, it is true that we would no longer have supply problems and we would soon be out of the tunnel. But this did not happen. That’s why? Could we actually stop the supplements being exported to vaccine companies in Europe? On paper, yes. In fact, Brussels should have had a hand Article 122 of the Treaty on its functioningSpecifying that “the Council may, on a resolution of the Commission, in the spirit of solidarity between member states decide on appropriate measures for the economic situation, particularly if there are serious difficulties in the supply of certain products” . “. So the European Union wanted to avoid venturing into a war of sorts over the supply of vaccines. They feared some sort of vengeance on the bottles in which they were inflated, the syringes with which they were administered and perhaps they Also with whom he had to produce.

Three days ago the European Medicines Agency EMA announced that it had approved Other plants in the European Union for vaccine production. One in Marburg, Germany, for the production of the Pfizer vaccine. Others in Leiden, Netherlands for the production of the AstraZeneca vaccine. And the EMA has given another plant to the Green Plant: Outside the EU, to produce Modern’s vaccine. “Production capacity and supply of Kovid-19 vaccines will be increased in the European Union”, the European Medical Agency specifies. Without a doubt, assuming that this time we will not repeat the mistake of being “blown up” by other non-EU countries.
