“What we expect for next year is indeed that there will be success because so many vaccine trials are now in motion. But we are also realistically expecting that it would take time until a vaccine becomes available everywhere. And it would be probably all the way until the end of 2022, when the world with vaccines equipped with vaccines, will have deployed them universally,”
4. Long shot, Kristalina Georgieva speaking
5. SOUNDBITE (English) Melinda Gates, Co-chair, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
“The idea is obviously we want the swiftest recovery we can around the world to reopen the global economy. So, you have to start with looking at health care workers, 70 percent of them are women. So around the globe, you need to get vaccine out first to health care workers because they are keeping us alive. Secondly, you have to get it out to the most vulnerable populations in country by country. There have been forecasts done that say if you take the first two billion doses of vaccines and they only get out to the high-income countries, you're going to get twice as much death,”
6. Long shot, Kristalina Georgieva speaking
7. SOUNDBITE (English) Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director, IMF
“We lobbied the G20 to provide debt relief for poor countries, true debt service suspension and I am very happy we are talking today because the G20 just extended for six more months this debt service suspension for poor countries. So, they all have to choose between vaccinating their people and paying their creditors,”
8. Long shot, Kristalina Georgieva speaking
9. SOUNDBITE (English) Melinda Gates, Co-chair, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
“We have to invest in vaccines for everybody, not the highest bidder, not this bilateral deal making, multi-lateral deal making, because we will bring the costs down and we will get everybody covered and we will take care of the global economy and get it building back faster,”
