The Dominican Republic just to the south of us had a problem. They could not from all their sources access the vaccines of the West. The timebomb of infections from covid was growing and what was the answer? They turned to China and got the Chinese vaccine Sinovac. Today some 5O per cent of the population of the DR is vaccinated compared to ten per cent in our own country. The vaccines are approved by the World Health Organization. The Chinese government has volunteered to give the vaccines to The Bahamas. They have distributed some 700 million worldwide but this Government refuses because of prejudice against the Chinese. In the meantime, people are dying.
