Medical experts don’t want to say “the worst is over,” but according to CNN, new coronavirus infections are down 60-percent from the peak of the Delta variant wave in September. Many experts attribute the timing of that drop to increased vaccinations.

On a related note, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have addressed world leaders at the G20 summit about the lack of access to COVID-19 vaccines in poor countries. In an open letter, the couple urges global leaders “to end this devastating inequity and end this pandemic once and for all.”

To put that in perspective, only three-and-a-half percent of people in low-income countries have received at least one dose of a vaccine. That’s compared to almost 50-percent of the world’s population receiving at least one dose.
