In his speech, Brinken emphasized the need for US leadership and said the government is exploring options for sharing more vaccine doses with other countries.
Brinken said that so far, the United States has lent vaccines to Canada and Mexico and hopes to cooperate with global partners to ensure that there is sufficient vaccine supply worldwide.
Blinken said: “We heard your voice.” He assured all countries that the United States “is acting as fast as possible” and has no interest in exchanging guns for political gain.
He said: “As we become more confident in the supply of vaccines at home, we are exploring options for sharing more vaccines with other countries.”
The organization said in a press release that Smith is the chief executive officer of the “Extreme Poverty and Preventable Diseases” campaign and that the organization will be “temporarily assigned to the State Department.”
Smith said after Blinken’s announcement: “If the virus spreads faster than us, it can win.” “But with the unity of purpose, science, vigilance and leadership, we can surpass any virus. “
