“We urgently need commitments of a further $2 billion from donors and $1 billion from countries supported by multilateral development banks. Included in the $2 billion we ask for is $150 million from the private sector,” Berkley told an event, referring to a funding target for June.

Stanley Erck, Novavax CEO, said that the US-based company had vaccine production capabilities in more than 20 facilities and that it was “well on our way to securing regulatory authorizations around the world”.
