The Secretary-General of the United Nations, António Guterres, stated that the wealth accumulated by the 10 largest billionaires of the world during the period of the Corona virus crisis will be sufficient to fund vaccination against the virus for everyone.
Guterres said that the report of the British non-governmental organization “Oxfam” issued this week showed that “the money accumulated by the top 10 billionaires in the world during the crisis will be sufficient to prevent anyone from sliding into poverty as a result of the epidemic.”
He added that it was possible to “finance the vaccination against Covid-19 for everyone, everywhere” with this money.
According to the aforementioned Oxfam report, the wealth of the top 10 billionaires increased during the crisis period caused by the Corona virus epidemic by 540 billion dollars, while the wealth of all billionaires increased by 3.9 trillion dollars during the period between March 18 and December 31, 2020.
