‘None of us is safe until we are all safe’
Alyssa Milano, Anne Hathaway and other Hollywood stars are calling on world leaders to end the coronavirus pandemic “now”.
“None of us is safe until we are all safe,” an open letter CARE (Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere) organization posted in the states. “We call on leaders gathering at the UN General Assembly session to work courageously together to end COVID-19 everywhere.”
The letter – signed by a group of A-listers including Debra Messing, Eva Longoria, Malin Ackerman, Debbie Allen, Jordana Brewster, Connie Britton, Ciara and others – calls the coronavirus “a man-made pandemic of nostalgia.”

The letter also said that “only 2% of people in low-income countries have received a single dose of available vaccines”, adding that “the world’s most vulnerable are facing COVID without any protection.”

“This situation allows new forms such as Delta to emerge and devastate millions of lives,” the memo said.
Citing the recent surge in cases, the signatories want “global leaders to have 7 billion vaccine doses available before the end of 2021 and an additional 7 billion doses by mid-2222 to fully vaccinate 70% of the world by next summer.” “
