3:05 pm
a lot of ingredients into the vaccines in the 1st place the come from all over the world you need syringe is unique while vials and also you need feel and finish in other places so the moment we don't have a free flow of medicine across borders the whole production will actually eat it is at risk of being being hold it so i think it won't benefit the e.u. a lot you know you would get maybe a little bit more of the vice of axioms if it stopped a 1000000000 plant folks exporting that to the u.k. but we're talking 30000000 and you know with the with the u.k. . population that's not going to make a huge difference now w.h.o. is also worried about the effects that this will have on vaccine production at not just in europe of course globally and how will the rest of the world be affected by these vaccine acts for controls. well so so so short term i think you know there isn't

a lot of exports going on yet at the moment most countries actually tend to to to to use their own domestic production but longer term this is incredibly dangerous to take a country like india india is said to produce civil billions of vaccines of india start saying we're not going to export any of that then the whole kovacs many low and middle income countries will be schuessler brisk and also going back to the e.u. if you look at her cabbage chip perspective the e.u. doesn't actually have a lot of production inside the e.u. for approved vaccines u.s. has many more u.k. has more and also a country like switzerland the e.u. might be dependent on already is for that madonna import so evil is also longer term actually risking having some of its own issues so so short term it won't make a big difference and long term it really puts puts the whole world at risk. rasmus hansen of analytics company air finity thank you
