According to reports in Uganda's national media, Uganda's Auditor General John Muwanga stated in his report to parliament that millions of doses of Covid-19 vaccine purchased with World Bank loans have expired.
Muwanga stated that the value of the expired 5.6 million doses of vaccine was 7.3 million dollars.
78 MILLION DOLLAR LOSS
It was emphasized that it is estimated that a total loss of 78 million dollars will be incurred by the end of the year due to expired vaccines.
It was noted that AIDS/HIV drugs that were not used due to changes in treatment methods also expired and their value was 8.6 million dollars.
In Africa, the vaccination campaign was not successful in many countries due to low interest in the vaccine and transportation difficulties.
