“Collectively, we are making significant new commitments to help keep up the fight against COVID-19 in 2022, protect the most vulnerable populations, and prepare for the next health crisis, because there will be others.

“You know, and the United States is going to continue to do our part.

“Today I’m announcing the United States will share critical COVID-19 technologies through the World Health Organization COVID-19 Technology Access Pool. We’re making available health technologies that are owned by the United States government, including stabilized spike protein that is used in many COVID-19 vaccines.

“We’re standing up a new pilot program, working with the Global Fund, to expand access to rapid testing and antiviral treatments for people in harder-to-reach areas.

“And we’re increasing our support for a new Pandemic Preparedness and Global Health Security fund that will be established at the World Bank this summer with $450 million in seed funding.

“I particularly want to commend Indonesia and Italy for their leadership in helping make this fund a reality. And I’m encouraging other leaders to join me in — in upping their commitments.

“You know, we’re going to face, together, global health crises. This is not the last one we’ve had. It’s not a question of “if,” it’s a question of “when.”

Debbie Mahan, director of The Simpsons, writes:

I’ve worked on this show for nearly 20 years. And this — BY FAR— is the most fun I’ve ever had working on an episode. My husband, who also works on the show, is an avid Smiths fan/collector, and was our resident Morrissey expert so it truly was a labour of love. Simpsons Smiths fans of the world, unite and watch this Sunday’s episode on FOX!
