WHO chief calls for any COVID-19 vaccine to be shared as a public good

Vaccines for the new coronavirus should be made available as a global public good, the World Health Organisation (WHO) said, to ensure everyone had fair access to any life-saving products that are developed.

“Many leaders…have promoted the idea of making any vaccine a global public good, but that should continue to be promoted,” WHO director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a press conference.

“More leaders should join the boat, and we need to have a truly global political commitment and global consensus before we even have the product,” he said. “That is what we are pushing.”
