schestowitz__Patents hindering production is only true for the production in a country where such a patent is valid (or applied for). That production in lower and middle-income countries would be hampered by patents is an assumption that I have not yet seen backed up by FTO studies that indicate which patents in which countries would be blocking. As far as I have experience in the patent coverage of life sciences patents, these hardly are May 17 21:29
schestowitz__filed and prosecuted in lower and middle-income countries (of course there will always be some exceptions). May 17 21:29
schestowitz__Thus, to my opinion, the problem of patent hindrance for which a waiver would be the solution, does not even exist. But even then, the current stance of the matter is indeed that -because of the pricing and limited production capacity - only the richer countries are able to provide vaccines to their people. It would be better that help programs, such as the COVAX initiative are broadly supported. May 17 21:29
