Views Of Leaders Who Are Helping Fight Coronavirus

Here are the views of leaders who are helping fight Coronavirus:

  • “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
  • “We will continue now to mobilise all G7 and G20 countries so they get behind this initiative. And I hope we will be able to reconcile around this joint initiative both China and the US, because this is about saying the fight against Covid-19 is a common human good and there should be no division in order to win this battle.” – Emmanuel Macron, French President
  • “We have moved to a recession that will be worse than the one we experienced in 2008.” – Amina J. Mohammed, UN Deputy-Secretary-General
  • “We are providing support, as attractively as we can, so that from the household to the large big corporate account, all economic players can access financing through their banks.” Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank
  • “The relationship between the biggest powers has never been as dysfunctional. Covid-19 is showing dramatically, either we join [together] … or we can be defeated.” – António Guterres, UN Secretary General
  • “Unless we do produce drugs and vaccines we are not going to have an exit strategy.” Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust
  • “We are facing a common threat that 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
  • “There is no solution to this crisis without a properly functioning vaccine.” – André Hoffmann, Vice Chairman of Roche
  • “There shouldn’t be any patent monopoly and profiteering out of this pandemic.”  – Yuan Qiong, senior legal and policy advisor at Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) Access Campaign
