Government's handling of the vaccine can be better: Prof Venter

Government is making poor decisions when it comes to dealing with COVD-19 and securing the vaccine. That's the view of Wits University's Professor Francois Venter.

Venter says the government is making poor decisions when it comes to dealing with COVID-19 and securing the vaccine.

He says political decisions masked as health decisions undermine public trust even further.

"The whole year has been characterized by poor and bizarre government decisions which needed a bit of explaining."

 "The vaccine issue I'm critical cause the government is not good at getting drugs cheap. Without the help of scientists, we'd still be offering basic care for HIV," he said.
