The World Health Organisation Wednesday urged rich countries to pay their fair share of the money needed for its plan to conquer Covid-19 by contributing $16 billion as a matter of urgency. The AFP reports that the WHO said the rapid cash injection into its Access to Covid Tools Accelerator could finish off Covid as a global health emergency this year. The WHO-led ACT-A is aimed at developing, producing, procuring, and distributing tools to tackle the pandemic: vaccines, tests, treatments and personal protective equipment.
