Global Collaboration Critical To Ending COVID-19 Pandemic, Chair Of U.K.’s Vaccine Taskforce Writes In Opinion Piece

The Telegraph: Ending the pandemic requires collaboration, funding and creative thinking — there is much yet to do
Kate Bingham, chair of the U.K.’s Vaccine Taskforce

“…With the search for a safe and effective vaccine well underway, it is vital that countries pool their resources to ensure fair global access to this vaccine or vaccines when they’re found. No country can stand alone in this, and no country should be isolated. As we all know, Covid-19 doesn’t respect borders. No one is safe until we’re all safe. Unless countries all over the world have a mutual interest in working together, there is little we can do. … But simply discovering a vaccine is not enough. The job is not yet done — we will need to continue to work together to solve the shared challenges to a global immunization campaign. We will need creative thinking at the largest and the smallest scales…” (10/20).
