A group of Hollywood stars think they can do a better job than the world’s politicians at handling the coronavirus pandemic, and have written an open letter to tell them how to do it.
‘Charmed’ witch Alyssa Milano, “Will & Grace’s” Debra Messing,“The Devil Wears Prada’s” Anne Hathaway, and long list of liberal celebrities signed an open letter they posted to the CARE (Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere) organization website.
The document, which was titled, “An open letter to world leaders on ending the COVID-19 pandemic now,” decrees that “None of us are safe until all of us are safe.”
Actress Eva Longoria, singer Ciara, comedian Sarah Silverman co-signed the plea to “leaders gathering at the United Nations General Assembly Session to boldly act together to end COVID-19 everywhere.”
“COVID-19 is now a manmade pandemic of apathy. Only 2% of people in low-income countries have received a single dose, leaving the world’s most vulnerable to face COVID with no protection. This situation also lets new variants, like Delta, emerge and ravage the lives of Millions,” the letter states.
They added their voices to CARE to implore global leaders to get 70% of the world fully vaccinated by next summer by making 7 billion doses of the vaccine available prior to the end of 2021 and send out another 7 billion doses by the halfway mark of 2022.
“To get this done the world community must also invest in last-mile delivery systems, public education, and frontline healthcare workers to get vaccines from tarmacs into arms. Millions of doses could go to waste because low-income countries don’t have the support they need to get vaccines to vulnerable people,” said the likes of Michelle Williams, Debbie Allen, and Jordana Brewster.
We can save millions of lives — and trillions in further economic damage — by meeting this moment with the resources and political will needed to end COVID-19 for everyone, everywhere,” the letter concluded. “Because none of us are safe until all of us are safe.”
