3. The US to ship 5.66-million Pfizer vaccine doses to South Africa, and Nigeria to get Moderna

The US government on Wednesday, July 28, said it will ship nearly 10 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to Nigeria and South Africa as the continent battles a third wave of infections, according to White House officials. 4-million doses of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine will go to Nigeria and 5.66-million doses of the Pfizer vaccine to SA, the officials said. The SA shipment is the single largest by the US since it began sending vaccine shots overseas, one of the officials said. The latest shipments bring the total US vaccine doses sent to Africa to 16.4-million.

4. Tanzania leader launches Covid-19 vaccination drive, orders more jabs

Tanzania’s president, Samia Suluhu Hassan received her COVID-19 vaccine in public on Wednesday, July 28, in the most decisive signal yet of a break from the policies of her late predecessor who repeatedly dismissed the threat of the pandemic. Hassan took office in March after the death of former president John Magufuli, who had warned citizens against COVID-19 vaccines and recommended at-home remedies such as steam inhalation. Since then, the government has changed tack as officials now call for social distancing and emphasize mask-wearing in public. In June, Tanzania also joined the global COVAX scheme for sharing vaccines with poorer nations, culminating in the delivery of its first batch of 1.06 million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine last week.

5. Tokyo Olympics: Nigerian federation ‘bears responsibility’ for ineligible athletes

The Athletics Federation of Nigeria (AFN) has taken responsibility after 10 athletes from the country were declared ineligible for the Tokyo Olympics. The Athletics Integrity Unit (AIU) ruled that the competitors will be unable to take part in Tokyo because of non-compliance with out-of-competition drug testing requirements in the run-up to the games. The AIU announced that a total of 20 athletes from the seven countries, including Morocco, Kenya and Ethiopia, regarded as high risk (category A) when it comes to doping have been ruled out, with Nigeria accounting for half of those excluded. All of the Nigerian athletes ruled ineligible had already arrived in Tokyo to prepare for the track and field events that begin on Friday. Photo: bellashmurda/Instagram
