Egypt’s plan to offer Covid-19 vaccine for money, ‘Unlawful’

Millions of underprivileged Egyptians will struggle to afford Covid-19 vaccines after the government announced it would charge people to receive them, threatening the country with a third wave of the pandemic, health experts and economists have warned.

The government recently unveiled plans that would allow only four percent of the North African country’s 100 million people to receive the free jab.

In response, a leading lawyer has filed a lawsuit against the Egyptian president, the prime minister and the minister of health to force them to offer the vaccines to citizens for free.
