A-LIST UNICEF AMBASSADORS URGE G7 TO DONATE VACCINES
A cohort of a-list celebrities, such as Billie Eilish, David Beckham, Whoopi Goldberg and Katy Perry, have called on the G7 leaders to commit to sharing at least 20 percent of available vaccine doses to poorer nations.
On behalf of Unicef, the celebs penned an open letter urging seven of the world’s largest economies to ensure fairness and equity by donating the doses.
“The world has spent a year and a half battling the Covid-19 pandemic, but the virus is still spreading in many countries and producing new variants with the potential to put us all back where we started,” it reads.
Unicef also warns that without urgently ensuring fair and equitable access supply, the world will continue to be at risk of deadly virus mutations.
President Biden has pledged the US will contribute half a billion Pfizer jabs to in-need nations, with British PM Boris Johnson has offered 100 million doses over the next 12 months.
