This article is mainly about what is happening in the EU. Here is a Reddit thread on the article which is a pretty good read. Be aware that it is in the sub /r/ukpolitics)
Comments of note (for me)
No company will ever agree to do anything like this at cost ever again. Which is probably the real point of this PR war.
Very little discussion of open source and no mention of the TRIPS waiver.
I genuinely think that long term AZ will come out on top...........
In the US Fauci says U.S. may not need AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine This could be a blessing for those who have so far been left out due to hoarding and vaccine Nationalism.
People tend to think corporations were not powerful back when the Polio vaccine was developed,
here is a long but interesting interview with Jonas Salk from 1976 that says otherwise (even though he is very careful with his words).
Or if you choose to see the bullshit that they went through with AIDS there is the online movie called And The Band Played ON. It only took 10 years and the Bayh-Dole Act, PEPFAR, and the Doha Declaration to get past the corporations on that one, we are only on year one with COVID.
