Here's an important voice of reason from @pisaniferry especially directed to rich countries: think globally in your own self-interest. Fund Covax properly. And I would add, stop the vaccine grab, and suspend patents on Covid-19 vaccines and drugs! https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/manaus-virus-highlights-rich-countries-self-interest-by-jean-pisani-ferry-2021-01?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=organic-social&utm_campaign=page-posts-january21&utm_post-type=link&utm_format=16:9&utm_creative=link-image&utm_post-date=2021-01-26

"During the HIV pandemic, intellectual property rules [ resulted in millions of needless deaths. We must not let history repeat itself. Pharmaceutical companies are receiving substantial amounts of taxpayer funding. They must share intellectual property."

2. suspend all labour laws(repealed only due to legal challenges)
3. no state support in the face of massive job losses https://twitter.com/telesurenglish/status/1352783110350331906
