Governments are being urged to finance a new $50 billion roadmap to end the COVID-19 pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Trade Organization (WTO) and the World Bank Group.
They warned that unless governments act now, continued waves of infections and outbreaks, as well as more transmissible and deadly virus variants, could threaten recovery.
The $50 billion investment is required for two crucial reasons:
The funding will increase manufacturing, supply, trade and delivery that would accelerate equitable distribution of the tools to diagnose and treat COVID-19, such as vaccines, oxygen and medical supplies, while also promoting economic growth around the world.
“This new roadmap reflects the need to enhance countries’ readiness and capacity systems to utilize these tools rapidly, safely and effectively”, said WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, speaking at media briefing later on Tuesday.
The joint plan was announced as WHO approved another COVID-19 vaccine for rollout.
The world government movement has hope that this 50 billion dollar plan will work out for everyone on Earth.
