The juxtaposition of this gave me a jolt:
“It’s hard to explain why people elsewhere are being vaccinated more quickly with an excellent vaccine developed in Germany. Time is crucial. If Israel, the US, or the UK are far ahead of us with jabs, they’ll also gain economically.”
Israel has vaccinated more than a million people with the German jab.
I might be primed by having been reading some Simon Schama.
But think back to 1945 and the incredulity with which Jews lining up for German injections would be greeted. Voluntarily lining up that is.
The place still ain’t perfect, definitely still some cleaning up in the corners to be done, but hasn’t the world got better since then?
