World Exclusive: World Bank seeks board approval for $12 billion coronavirus vaccine financing plan
Only 9 Percent of Americans Have Confidence in Trump Vouching for Vaccine Effectiveness, Poll Says
An overwhelming majority of Americans have no confidence or trust in President Donald Trump to verify the safety of any coronavirus vaccine, a new poll shows.Only a single-digit percentage of U.S. adults, 9 percent, said they have a great deal of confidence in Trump's ability—or intention—to confirm the effectiveness of a COVID-19 vaccine. Sixty-nine percent of Americans in the poll released Sunday said they don't have any confidence in Trump's endorsement of the vaccine.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - World Bank President David Malpass said on Tuesday he is seeking board approval for a $12 billion coronavirus vaccine financing plan to help poor and developing countries secure a sufficient share of vaccine doses when they become available in the coming months.
Malpass told Reuters in an exclusive interview that the initiative, part of $160 billion in coronavirus aid financing pledged by the multilateral lender, is aimed at helping countries procure and distribute vaccines early to health care and other essential workers and expand global production.
