Accordingto him, the inability of countries on the continent to manufacture their own vaccines and the struggle to develop diagnostic test kits when COVID-19 was first recorded in Africa, is a clear indication that more needs to be done to boost quality healthcare delivery in Africa in the face of the pandemic.

Addressing the Pan African Parliament in South Africa, the Ghanaian leader said Africa should learn a lot from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“One thing about the pandemic of COVID-19 is that we must hasten the process of regional and continental intervention because acting together will boost our capacity to succeed. From our inability to make our own diagnostic test to the scramble of vaccines and to the shocks that our economy has suffered, it has resulted in the recession of the continent”, he said.

Nana Akufo-Addo particularly asked for support for countries like South Africa, Rwanda, Senegal, Ghana, and others in the manufacturing of vaccines for the continent.

“It is obvious that we need each other, and more so in combating the COVID-19 pandemic. We must develoacity to produce our own vaccines so that we can more effectively deal with future pandemics and not be dependent on foreign supplies and benevolence for the protection of our people.”
