The Austrian FM further stated that multilateralism is the only way to defeat the pandemic. He emphasized the cooperation of the world which can put an end to the coronavirus.
Note that the coronavirus pandemic has had dire effects on the world since its arrival in 2019. It has not only destroyed the economy of the developing countries but also affected the economy of the developed countries. It has forced the government to put lockdowns and enforce social distancing.
Coronavirus pandemic has united the world. The developed countries are helping the poor countries to fight against the breakout by providing vaccines and humanitarian aid. The role of IVI has also become important due to the increasing myths against vaccines.
