Kagwe receives backlash for casting doubts on newly found coronavirus vaccine
Health CS Mutahi Kagwe has received a backlash from Kenyans for casting doubts on the newly found coronavirus vaccine.
Kagwe who appeared before the Senate health Committee stated that he had many doubts about the vaccine found by Pfizer- BioNTech.
“As you know yesterday Pfizer says there is a vaccine, that i really personally, to tell you the truth, have got my many doubts about it because we are talking about a disease that stops people from getting the virus,” said Kagwe.
“Now i would like to know how they knew in the first place that i was going to get the virus… you know you are talking about a treatment when i have a virus and it goes down, i can understand the measure but when you tell me that i stopped you from getting the virus, how did you know in the first place that i was going to get the virus?” posed Kagwe.
The manufacturer is among more than 25 drug makers who have expressed interest to supply developing countries with the vaccine under the Sh300-per-dose plan led by the World Health Organization.
