"Calling global vaccine inequality "morally objectionable," Sen. Bernie Sanders said Sunday the U.S. must do its part to ensure the sharing of Covid-19 vaccine technology.

"Not only do we have a moral responsibility to help the rest of the world, it’s in our own self interest because if this pandemic continues to spread in other countries, it’s going to come back and bite us at one point or another," the Vermont Independent said in an interview on NBC’s "Meet the Press."

In addition to the nation sharing its surplus vaccine doses, Sanders said the U.S. must take action at the World Trade Organization (WTO) regarding pharmaceutical companies’ intellectual property rights on pandemic-related technology.

South Africa and virus-ravaged India are leading a widely backed proposal at the WTO for a temporary suspension of intellectual property rules to enable a boost in global manufacturing of vaccines. Wealthy nations including the U.S. have thus far opposed the proposed TRIPS waiver, though the Biden administration, the Washington Post reported FRiday, is now considering backing it."
