"Commitments alone won’t save lives, stop transmission, immunize people, scale up manufacturing capacity, and ready the world to prevent future health emergencies. What is needed now is for commitments to turn into immediate actions to equitably end the pandemic"- @DrTedros
"5⃣ A concerted campaign to defeat misinformation and disinformation on all fronts of the #COVID19 response, from the safety of vaccines to public health measures that save lives"- @DrTedros #COVIDSummit
"4⃣ A global commitment to preparedness & response in the form of an international agreement, compact or treaty that guarantees highest level political commitment for strengthening global collaboration on preventing & addressing pandemics & epidemics"- @DrTedros #COVIDSummit
