🔴Thursday June 3rd 2021 🔵2021年6月3日星期四 🔱Espresso - Today’s agenda 每日濃縮 - 今日頭條 💰💉💪A $2.4bn shot in the arm: financing COVAX 24億美元募給 COVAX:疫苗催落去 A fundraising summit yesterday got rich countries to pledge $2.4bn for COVAX, a partnership that buys covid-19 vaccines for poor countries. If they fulfill those promises, that will help COVAX meet its target of distributing 1.8bn jabs this year. It would also ensure a more even global distribution of vaccines. COVAX has so far shipped 77m doses to 127 countries. America alone has put nearly four times as many jabs in arms. With the new money, COVAX estimates that it could reach up to 30% of people in the poor countries it supplies by early 2022. Because those doses aren’t ready yet, it would be more helpful in the short-term if rich countries donated existing vaccines. Though not all have yet arrived, they have ordered enough to inoculate their populations several times over. Some 54m doses were pledged at the summit, bringing total promised donations to more than 132m jabs. It’s a step in the right direction but, given millions of covid-19 deaths around the world, a tragically small one. 昨天舉行的疫苗募資峰會確立了富國們將對 COVAX (一旨在讓全球公平獲取新冠疫苗的全球倡議/合作機制) 追加捐贈 24億美元。假如富國們兌現了這些承諾,這將有助於 COVAX 達成原本今年設下之分送 18億劑疫苗的目標,且確保全球疫苗的分配更加平均。截至目前,COVAX 已經向 127個國家分送了 7,700萬劑疫苗。但光美國本身就為自己國人接種了超過這個數字四倍的疫苗量。有了新的資金,COVAX 預估在 2022年初以前可完成窮國 30%人口的疫苗接種。不過正因 (目前只有錢而) 疫苗仍尚未完成整備,所以就短期來說,富國直接捐贈現存的疫苗是個較為實際的做法。儘管富國們所下訂的疫苗尚未全數交貨,但它們訂購的數量早就足以施打其人民好幾回了。疫苗峰會亦追加了 5,400萬劑疫苗的捐贈,使得疫苗捐贈總數超過 1,32億劑。但是有鑒於數百萬人死於新冠疫情,雖然目前這樣的做法是對的,但仍杯水車薪。 ⚜️Daily takeaway⚜️ 每日單字精選 ✅Fundraising (adj.): 募資的、籌款的 (形) ✅Pledge (v./n.): 保證、誓約 (動/名) ✅Fulfill (v.): 履行、滿足、完成 (動) ✅Distribution (n.): 分配、分發 (名) ✅Estimate (v.): 估計、預估 (動) ✅Short-term (adj.): 短期的 (形) ✅Inoculate (v.): 接種 (動) ✅Tragically (adv.): 悲劇地、可悲地 (副) — ✔︎ 按讚【每日一經濟學人】Facebook 粉專:https://reurl.cc/Lddode ✔︎ 追蹤【每日一經濟學人】Instagram 帳號:https://reurl.cc/Oqqoq3 ✔︎ 訂閱【每日一經濟學人】YouTube 頻道:https://reurl.cc/Y665dX ✔︎ 閱讀【每日一經濟學人】Medium 平台:https://reurl.cc/k00WZr — 🔶如有商業合作或業務需求,請洽:leontheeconomist@gmail.com 🔴如影音內容有誤,歡迎來信勘誤:leontheeconomist@gmail.com
