The United States expects to be able to produce about 1 billion doses of coronavirus vaccines by the end of 2022, and Washington plans to provide some of these drugs to countries in need. US President Joe Biden announced this.
“We believe that between the second half of 2021 and the end of 2022, we will be able to produce another 1 billion doses of [COVID] vaccines,” the US leader said at a joint press conference with the South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the White House.
“Those of us who have advanced capabilities [in the pharmaceutical industry] have an obligation to do everything possible to ensure [in the current pandemic] the protection of the entire world as a whole,” the US chief of staff stressed.
“I know that this is an extremely ambitious proposal. But I believe that countries with such potential will continue to work to achieve this goal,” Biden added. He did not speak in more detail on this topic.
