Covid has been unforgiving on all of us.
Omicron was preceded & will be succeeded by other viruses.
Pointing fingers is not the response we need.
Delivering jabs where it’s needed most should be our concern.
We stand with our sisters & brothers of Africa. #WeShallOvercome.
The continued existence of nuclear weapons drastically undermines our peace and security, threatening to put existential stakes on even minor conflicts.

The longer we delay universal access to #vaccines the more variants we risk.
