I want to thank President Biden for this important initiative to help mobilise the international community to boost our joint efforts to vaccinate everybody everywhere and to thank him for the announcements he made today.
Global health security until now has failed, to the tune of 4.5 million lives, and counting.
We have effective vaccines against COVID-19. We can end the pandemic.
And that is why I have been appealing for a global vaccination plan and I hope this summit is a step in that direction.
