To help get vaccines to more people, Google is providing $150M to promote vaccine education & equitable access, and opening up our spaces for vaccination sites as needed. On Search & Maps, we’re making it easy to find when + where to get a vaccine.

This week, we expect to reach 100 million cases of #COVID19. Numbers can make us numb to what they represent: every death is someone’s parent, someone’s partner, someone’s child, someone’s friend.
This must strengthen our resolve to save lives - take care of ourselves & others

Full remarks by @DrTedros during the media briefing on #COVID19 - 25 January 2021 👇

"The #COVID19 pandemic has reminded all of us that health and economics are closely connected, and that we are all #InThisTogether"-@DrTedros

 151  15  43

"I will tell them that we are doing everything we can to accelerate the rollout of #COVID19 vaccines in Africa, to save lives and get their economies back on track. The rest of the world must play its part too"-@DrTedros #ACTogether

 89  8  17

"Less than an hour ago I spoke to President @CyrilRamaphosa of #SouthAfrica, and on Wednesday I will be speaking with Ministers of Health and Ministers of Finance from the @_AfricanUnion"-@DrTedros

"Until we end the #COVID19 pandemic everywhere, we won’t end it anywhere.

As we speak, rich countries are rolling out vaccines, while the 🌍’s least-developed countries watch & wait.

Every day that passes, the divide grows larger between the world’s haves & have nots"-@DrTedros

 72  5  35

"If fully funded, the @ACTAccelerator would return up to $166 for every dollar invested.
Vaccine nationalism might serve short-term political goals. But it’s in every nation’s own medium & long-term economic interest to support vaccine equity"-@DrTedros #ACTogether #COVID19

 51  6  16

"The 2nd study, commissioned by the @iccwbo Research Foundation, makes a strong economic case for #COVID19 vaccine equity. It finds that vaccine nationalism could cost the 🌍 economy up to $9.2 trillion & almost 1/2 of that would be incurred in the wealthiest economies"-@DrTedros

 33  3  14

Quoted @ilo

Our new report assesses the damage of the #COVID19 crisis and the numbers are grim. 8.8% of global working hours were lost last year, roughly 255 million full-time jobs - that's four times more than were lost during the 2008-2009 financial crisis. Report:

"The report:
-projects that most countries will recover in the 2nd half of 2021, depending on vaccination rollout
-recommends intl. support for low- & middle-income countries to support vaccine rollout & to promote economic & employment recovery"-@DrTedros

Quoted @DrTedros

A year ago, #COVID19 emerged & sparked a pandemic. Life-saving vaccines have been developed. What happens next is up to us. If we don't #ACTogether, the 🌍 is on the brink of a catastrophic moral failure & the price will be paid with lives & livelihoods in the poorest countries.

"Last week, I said that the 🌍 stood on the brink of a catastrophic moral failure if it doesn’t deliver equitable access to #COVID19 vaccines. Two new studies show that it wouldn’t just be a moral failure, it would be an economic failure"-@DrTedros

 17  3  11

"A new report from the @ilo analyses the impact of the #COVID19 pandemic on the global labour market. It finds that 8.8% of global working hours were lost last year, resulting in a decline in global labour income equivalent to $3.7 trillion"-@DrTedros

"As a reminder, the deadline for submitting films for this year’s festival is this Saturday, the 30th of January. So get your films in – I look forward to seeing them"-@DrTedros #Film4Health #HealthForAll

 26  5  8

"This year we’re inviting entries in 3⃣ categories, matching each of WHO’s strategic priorities:
1⃣ #HealthForAll
2⃣health emergencies
3⃣better health & well-being
More details about the categories, and the festival, are available on our website"-@DrTedros
