“What Britain got right and the EU got wrong is to realize there’s not a fixed quantity of vaccines to go round,” Sam Bowman, director of competition policy at the International Center for Law & Economics, told Arab News.

“So while it’s tempting to see this as someone jumping the queue for a vaccine, if it means more money going into the supply of new ones, that should speed up vaccine delivery for all of us.”
