COVID-19 CASES WORLDWIDE
Why is the White House still keeping the vaccines the public paid to invent out of the hands of billions of poor people?
Right now, billions of people in the Global South won't get vaccines until 2024. This is a form of vaccine apartheid and an urgent racial justice issue affecting the most marginalized people in our world. It is also a threat to people everywhere. Letting COVID-19 run rampant means millions more deaths, more deadly variants, and prolongs pandemic safety restrictions, at enormous cost to the global economy.
Vaccine development was funded with public money, but pharmaceutical companies seem to think they have a right to privatize the profits. We need 12-14 billion doses distributed this year around the world. To do that, we are demanding the U.S. support the request by over 100 developing countries at the World Trade Organization for a waiver of patent monopolies, freeing poor countries to manufacture the vaccines vaccines they need. Joe Biden, right now, has the power to do this.
