TODAY, Malaysia has set a new record high of 2,593 new Covid-19 infections. The spike in cases around the world makes us disheartened. Some even lose hope and wonder when this pandemic will end. In any case, the vaccines offer hope. Fair and equitable access to a Covid-19 vaccine is necessary. Since the right to health is a basic human right, every state has an obligation to ensure this to all human beings who are within its territory and under its authority. Special care has to be given to vulnerable people who do not have regular access to health services, such as indigenous peoples, minority communities, persons in overcrowded residences and detention centres, migrant workers and refugees.
