United Nations (UN) Secretary-General António Guterres said on Thursday that the Covid-19 vaccine must be seen as a "people's vaccine."
He made the remarks while speaking at the Global Vaccine Summit, reports the CNN.
"Covid-19 is the greatest public health crisis of our generation and right now there is no vaccine. As we work together to develop one, there is an important lesson we need to understand. A vaccine by itself is not enough; we need global solidarity to ensure that every person everywhere has access. A Covid-19 vaccine must be seen as a global public good – a people's vaccine – which a growing number of world leaders are calling for," said Guterres.
The Global Vaccine Summit is a virtual gathering hosted by the UK with leaders around the world seeking cooperation on research and funding for a Covid-19 vaccine.
