Case (in Foreign Policy) for the US to wipe out COVID-19 by vaccinating the world
To Protect Itself, America Must Vaccinate the World Today, the United States loses a 9/11-level toll of its citizens to COVID-19 every week—usually every few days. The bad news: This battle can’t be won at home. But that’s the good news too. A sample: “The Delta Variant arose on the other side of the world, but viruses don’t care about national borders. Delta is only the fourth variant to merit a Greek name; there are 20 more letters in the Greek alphabet. “It would cost just $50 billion to bring the entire world to herd immunity. That’s less than what Joe Biden is proposing for upgrades to Amtrak. This investment would generate an economic return of $9 trillion. Even if IMF calculations are off by a factor of 10 (they aren’t), that would be global return on investment of nearly 2,000 percent. My old boss has the opportunity to protect the health and safety of all Americans, and save millions of lives across the planet. He should do it. Now. Right this minute.”
