  • CNN published this video item, entitled “Melinda Gates: Covid-19 vaccine needs to be distributed worldwide for a faster economic recovery” – below is their description.

    Melinda Gates is urging leaders in wealthy countries not to forget about the rest of the world as coronavirus vaccines begin to roll out.

    “Everybody needs this vaccine,” Gates, co-founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, told CNN’s Poppy Harlow Thursday. “If we only get it to the high-income countries, this disease is going to bounce around. We’re going to see twice as many deaths. And our recovery of our economies is going to be much slower than if we get the vaccine out to everybody.”

    The Gates Foundation on Thursday said it plans to commit an additional $250 million to support the “research, development and equitable delivery” of tools to fight Covid-19, including tests, treatments and vaccines. The announcement brings the group’s total commitments to the global Covid-19 response to $1.75 billion.
