Japan Will Increase Funding for the Development of a Vaccine against Coronavirus to $ 300 Million
“Last month, we promised to allocate $ 100 million to the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (GAVI) to fight COVID-19. We hope that GAVI will be able to consider using Japanese vaccines, manufacturing facilities and technology to defeat the virus. In this regard, we will additionally allocate another $ 200 million and bring the total to $ 300 million", he said.
Abe previously stated that he would like to propose to the G-7 partners to create an international patent management body for potential coronavirus vaccines. The main goal of this initiative is to ensure stable supplies to developing countries.
