Video message from the Chancellor
A global challenge like the pandemic can only be overcome with a global effort, stressed Chancellor Angela Merkel in a video message for Saturday’s side event to the G20 summit "Pandemic Preparedness and Response". "In order to halt the pandemic, every country needs to have access to and be able to afford the vaccine," said Angela Merkel. The funds pledged so far are not yet enough to achieve this, she pointed out. The Chancellor called on the heads of state and government, "I therefore appeal to you all to support this important initiative."
