As the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases worldwide approaches 4 million and the pandemic could be with us for months or years, we look at who can access drugs like remdesivir, being developed by pharmaceutical giant Gilead, which has the patent for the drug and is poised to make massive profits. We look at how much drugs like remdesivir will cost, and who can access them, with writer Achal Prabhala, coordinator of the AccessIBSA project, which campaigns for access to medicines in India, Brazil and South Africa.

It Takes a Revolution to Make a Solution
Vijay Prashad | dissidentvoice.org | 2020-05-07
I admit upfront that this is a hard newsletter to read. It is about debt. There is a bloodless quality to the way that we talk about the debt of the poorer nations. There is nothing poetic here. The numbers are alienating, their outcome shocking. In mid-April, eighteen heads of government from Africa and Europe …

Roaming Charges: Ain't Living Long Like This
Jeffrey St. Clair | counterpunch.org | 2020-05-08
+ The detestable rationalizations liberals make for sticking with Biden despite Tara Reade's convincing story can't come as any surprise. It's the same ritual contortions they've made about the Iraq war, fracking, abortion, the drug war, Anita Hill, social security, segregation, climate change, health care, deportations, a living wage, student debt, the Patriot Act, pipelines, the Libyan coup, climate change. To be a Democrat is to live in a constant state of denial, self-contradiction and moral hypocrisy.

Children of Hani Shamshi, 44, a Somali refugee mother at a semi-arid Dadaab camp in Kenya are gazing at the kitchen at Iftar, the time for breaking fast during Ramadan, hoping something will be cooked. But there is nothing. They may again go to sleep with hungry stomachs."I have nothing to give to children. It's sad to watch your children starve. During Ramadan, food is also expensive and we can't do hard labor due to seething temperatures and fasting," she said."This is a Ramadan like I've never witnessed since I was born.

Emerging infectious diseases require a global approach and adaptive tools to allow for rapid and comprehensive characterisation of the risks associated with the disease, particularly in pregnancy. Pregnant women are particularly vulnerable to infections because of their relative immunosuppressed state, restricted cardiorespiratory capacity, and the potential for adverse pregnancy or perinatal outcomes (eg, preterm birth, vertical transmission, fetal growth restriction, fetal anomalies, and death), as observed with severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus, Middle East respiratory syndrome-related coro…

[Commentary] SARS-CoV-2 pandemic expanding in sub-Saharan Africa: Considerations for COVID-19 in people living with HIV
Paul K. Drain, Nigel Garrett | thelancet.com | 2020-04-21
In December 2019, a novel coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, started a global pandemic of respiratory illness, termed COVID-19 [1]. The spectrum of COVID-19 has ranged from a mild, self-limiting respiratory tract illness to severe progressive pneumonia, multi-organ failure, and death [2]. Older patients and those with a weaker immune system appear to have a greater risk of death [3]. Thus far, the vast majority of deaths from COVID-19 have occurred in Italy, China, Iran, and Spain–all Northern hemisphere countries with good health care resources and a low HIV prevalence.

[Editorial] COVID-19: endgames

As of April 14, 2020, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has killed more than 120‚Äà000 people and led to nearly 2 million confirmed infections worldwide. At least a third of the global population is in some form of lockdown, treading the fine line between health services overwhelmed with rapidly rising infections and an economic recession with its own detrimental health consequences. Although this surreal situation might seem like a plot from the Avengers franchise, the hard reality is that the selfless actions of health-care workers will not alone restore the world to normality.
