Germany against waiver of vaccine patent protections

Germany rejected on Thursday the recent proposal made by the United States about providing a waiver for COVID-19 vaccine patent protections in order to boost inoculations worldwide.

The German government insisted that intellectual property isn't an issue when it comes to the pace of the vaccinations, but the production capacities and the matter of ensuring the quality.

"The protection of the intellectual property is a source of innovation and must remain so in the future," a government spokeswoman stated.
