The Latest News From World Leaders On Coronavirus

Here is the latest news from world leaders on Coronavirus:

  • “This infection is not going to disappear…without science leading us to vaccines, we will get second and third waves of this.” – Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust
  • “As new diagnostics, treatments and vaccines become available, we have a responsibility to get them out equitably with the understanding that all lives have equal value.” – Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Gates Foundation
  • “The key is to keep the DNA of the business intact so that when we come back out of this incredible, unique situation, we have all the building blocks we started with before to spring right back into business.” – Kevin O’Leary, Entrepreneur and co-star of Shark Tank
  • “We are facing a common threat which we can only defeat with a common approach. Experience has told us that even when tools are available they have not been equally available to all. We cannot allow that to happen.” -Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO Director General
  • “It’s safe to say that sitting here today, America is largely out of business, as many industries have idled capacity, as consumers are staying at home, working from home. Schools are closed, it’s a very unique environment that none of us have seen before, and there is no playbook for how to react in this environment. We’re writing the script each and every day.” – Brian Cornell, CEO of Target
  • “The lessons from AIDS must be learned. Too many millions died before anti-retroviral medicines were made widely accessible.” – Peter Sands, Head of the Global Fund to Fight on AIDS
  • “Today, we are witnessing what will surely be remembered as a historic deployment of remote work and digital access to services across every domain, including medicine, education, government, entertainment and more. In the coming weeks and months, services will be further digitized as the creativity of a massive work-from-home population gets rolling.” – Bob Swan, CEO of Intel
  • “We need to ensure that there are enough vaccines for everyone, we are going to need global leadership to identify and prioritise vaccine candidates. We can’t have a repeat of what happened in 2009 – the H1N1 vaccine, when there was not enough supply for developing countries or when supply did come it came much later.” – Dr. Seth Berkley, CEO of the GAVI vaccine alliance
