President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has called on world leaders to ensure that in the event that a vaccine is found for the novel corona virus, COVID-19, it should be made available to the entire world and not the rich few.
There has been a debate among world super powers as to who gets to be first in line for a COVID-19 vaccine when one is discovered. United States health authorities hope by late next month to have some draft guidance on how to ration initial doses, but it’s a vexing decision and the developing world are those likely to be discriminated most should a vaccine be found.
Addressing the virtual 75th United Nations General Assembly via a pre-recorded video today, the 23rd of September 2020, President Akufo-Addo said the entire world has been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic together and so must rise out of it together.
“Mr. President, the lessons are clear we all fell together and looked into the abbeys together even as we closed our borders and shut airports, reality dawned on all of us that we had to rely on each other to be able to get out of the trouble that we were in. We have all gone down together, we should all rise together” President Akufo-Addo said.“If the answer to this pandemic lies in finding a vaccine, that vaccine should be made available to the whole world, rich and poor alike, developed and developing, all races and all believes” President Akufo-Addo stated.
