I really hope China makes one of their vaccines open source to help developing countries and as a massive fuck you to Western pharma companies. They helped spearhead this IP waver so it doesn’t seem out of the question at all.
That twitter thread is such a capitalist cesspool.
The linked article even talks about it only being a “temporary waiver” “until herd immunity is reached”. This is literally putting profits before human lives, but god forbid a vaccination against a life-threatening infection gets into the hands of those poor people.
US and European governments are just terrorist orgs with neckties.
