What Happens to Countries Rejecting Covid-19 Vaccines?

in an interview with Moina Spooner of The Conversation, pathology expert Dr Ahmed Kalebi said that "in countries where no significant proportion of the population is vaccinated, there is a huge risk of sustained community spread of COVID-19 over a prolonged period. The longer the period of sustained community spread, the more likely that the virus will mutate. And this means it could be a breeding ground for the new coronavirus - SARS-CoV-2 - to mutate into more aggressive variants". Thus far, Tanzania and Madagascar have been adamant that they would not be acquiring Covid-19 vaccines. Madagscar's French publication La Express De Madagascar is reporting a rise in Covid-19 cases at community-based health centres.
