Gates: Vaccine should be given where most needed

Saturday, 11. July 2020 15:15

Bill Gates said on Saturday the medications and vaccines to treat the coronavirus should be made available to countries and people that need it the most and "not the highest bidder."

The billionaire philanthropist and co-founder of Microsoft added that "relying on market forces" is only prolonging the pandemic instead of striving to end it.

Gates's statement comes as a response to the claims the United States purchased "almost entire" world supply of remdesivir, a drug that is currently being examined as a possible cure for COVID-19, and the rumors the US will be the first test the vaccine made by Sanofi.
