11:17 pm
talking about 240 million doses go to waste. is it a situation where these three countries including the u.s. just under estimated or over estimated i should say. how many people were going to want to get a booster shot? >> there is that and frankly they sort of recorded and it was the u.k., the u.s. and the eu and japan all together bought more doses than needed. actually doctors without borders warned us two months ago that this was happening and it could be as much as 240 million doses wasted in march and it is coming true when only 9.7% of those are low income countries have received even one dose. we are still at that level of global and equity. >> the world health organization have been vocal about the fact that here we are giving out boosters and there are many
11:18 pm
