La Course au Vaccin Anti-COVID-19 : à la Croisée des Intérêts Géopolitiques et Géoéconomiques

22
February 2021
Salma Daoudi, Larabi Jaïdi et Uri Dadush

Alors que la pandémie de COVID-19 a mis à nu l’avènement d’un monde désolidarisé, l’élaboration tant espérée d’un vaccin contre le nouveau Coronavirus n’a fait que porter cette désolidarisation à son paroxysme. En effet, la course vers l’accaparement des doses de vaccin a mis en lumière l’image d’un monde désuni où une myriade d’Etats, en quête de souveraineté sanitaire, s’affrontent dans une course acharnée contre la montre. Larabi Jaïdi et Uri Dadush, tous deux Senior Fellows au Policy Center for the New South, discutent la course au vaccin, les dangers que celle-ci pose aux pays du Sud ainsi que les différents obstacles à la distribution équitable des doses.

    Between January 2020 and June 2021, the world spent about US $16.5 trillion (18% of world GDP) to fight COVID-19, and this amount does not even include the most important losses such as deaths, mental health effects, restrictions on human freedom, and other nonmonetary suffering. Nearly 90% of this amount was spent by developed economies; the rest by emerging market and developing economies. Low-income countries spent just US $12.5 billion, or less than 0.0001% of the total.

In a downside scenario, the return could take almost a year longer. The OECD predictions, which imply high and protracted unemployment, are in line with the view of many other official and private organizations. The arrival of effective vaccines such as Pfizer-BioNTech wa ...
