Global call for 'free COVID-19 vaccine for all'

Global call for 'free COVID-19 vaccine for all'”

The news comes as Britain's main vaccine project gathers pace after a group of monkeys displayed potential Covid-19 immunity following vaccine injections. The letter also asks all governments and global partners to unite and ensure when the vaccine is developed it is produced rapidly at a large scale and made available to all people in all countries.

According to Nana Akufo Addo, it is important that people everywhere have access to the vaccine when one becomes available, adding that it is the people's vaccine.

The director of the National Institute of Health says no corners will be cut in the search for a vaccine - which is going on here in Montana - and there's encouraging news about a potential vaccine now being tested on humans and monkeys. It is our best hope of putting a stop to this painful global pandemic.

We recognize that many countries and worldwide organizations are making progress towards this goal, cooperating multilaterally on research and development, funding and access, including the welcome $8 billion pledged on 4th May.

In the letter, the leaders, including presidents of South Africa, Ghana and Senegal, and prime ministers of Finland and Pakistan, acknowledged efforts by many countries and worldwide organizations towards producing vaccine.

Coronavirus has infected more than 4 million people globally and killed 299,596 people.

That's when the vaccine triggers a worse response to a disease.

We must heed the warning that "Those who do not remember the past are doomed to repeat it".

This call for people's vaccine also applies for all the treatments, and technologies for COVID-19.

Some persons have expressed concerns over people in rich countries having quicker access to the vaccine than those in poor countries.

"They are demanding that all vaccines, treatments and tests be patent-free, mass produced and distributed fairly", said UNAIDS in a statement, adding that South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa, is pushing for scientific research to be shared between countries and that the vaccine be patent-free.

The letter ends with saying only people's vaccine can protect all of humanity and make societies safe and running again. A bold worldwide agreement can not wait.
