In the United States and the United Kingdom, the priority is to mass vaccinate its own population. 43.5% of Britons and 26.7% of Americans received at least one dose of the vaccine. It is thus necessary to ensure that all the doses produced remain on the national territory. In Moscow (Russia) and Beijing (China), it’s influence first. The two countries vaccinate their populations little, but they give or sell their vaccine all over the world: in 72 countries for the Russian vaccine Sputnik, and in 48 countries for Chinese vaccines, many of them in Africa. The Chinese have already exported 500 million doses of their vaccine. “China’s objective is to use the vaccine to gain credibility on the international scene vis-à-vis developing countries, but above all to try to discredit Western countries, and in particular the United States and the European Union”, analysis Antoine Bondaz, researcher at the Foundation for Strategic Research.
