Just so it's clear, Biden is not, in fact, supporting the proposal for a patent waiver as-is, even though South Africa has been pushing for it for over a year. Biden says he supports a patent waiver of some kind and negotiations, but is being vague & not aggressively pushing.

For the world community: this news is a reminder that this pandemic will not end until we have global vaccinations. The U.S. has already donated more vaccines to other countries than every other country combined. It is time for other countries to match our speed and generosity.

Here is sourcing for the Biden admin's lack of genuine pushing for the patent waiver proposal put forward by India and South Africa, which is important because the US is very powerful at the WTO and if it wants to make things happen there it certainly can.

@sarahlazare But the Twitter ads I get from shady think tanks probably funded by big pharma tell me that a patent waiver wouldn't result in any additional vaccines being made! Who am I to believe!
