The coronavirus has led to the deaths of thousands of people around the world and the numbers keep increasing. Millions of people are also affected by the pandemic.
Although no cure has been found, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations(CEPI) has developed a vaccine that aims to protect against the virus.
In a tweet by the United Nations Foundation on Monday, it was announced that they have raised a $10 million disbursement from the #COVID19Fund to support @CEPIvaccines.
Vaccines are one of our most important weapons in fighting this pandemic💉— CEPI (@CEPIvaccines) April 13, 2020
We are profoundly grateful for people’s generosity in donating to CEPI through the #COVID19 Solidarity Response Fund @WHO 🙏 https://t.co/yFfVIJCbwi
Lady Gaga has called on world leaders to help raise more money for the funding of the vaccine.
She took to Twitter on Monday to ask President Emmanuel Macron, President of the EU Commission Ursula von der Leyen and Justin Trudeau, the Prime Minister of Canada to fund the vaccine.
Below are the tweets.
President @EmmanuelMacron — last year you showed your leadership in the fight against pandemics. We need you to support the global fight against #COVID19 through the @UN, @CEPIvaccines & @Gavi. We’re all in this together as #GlobalCitizens.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) April 13, 2020
President @vonderleyen — as a doctor you know that disease doesn't know borders. Thanks for stepping up on @UN and bilateral #COVID19 help. We need your leadership on the lifesaving work of @CEPIvaccines & @Gavi. We’re all in this together as #GlobalCitizens.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) April 13, 2020
Hi @JustinTrudeau — thanks for funding @CEPIvaccines, the @UN appeal, and for all 🇨🇦 is doing to stop #COVID19 and #PlankTheCurve. Will Canada give new funds to @Gavi to deliver vaccines and save lives in the poorest countries? We’re all in this together as #GlobalCitizens.— Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) April 13, 2020
