Melinda Gates on joining the Coronavirus Global Response


Melinda Gates, Co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

“The moment we are living through right now is a reminder that we are all part of the same global community. As new diagnostics, treatments and vaccines become available, we have a responsibility to get them out acceptably, with the understanding that all lives have equal value. Covid-19 knows no borders and defeating it will require action and investment across sectors and countries. The collaboration we are seeing today, along with the commitments we make at the upcoming Global Response summit, will help the world rise up to meet this big challenge.“
