Bidem team supports waiving vaccine patents

The United States said on Wednesday that it supports waiving valuable patent and other intellectual property protections for Covid-19 vaccines to help expand production of life-saving shots worldwide.

“This is a global health crisis, and the extraordinary circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic call for extraordinary measures,” U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai said in a statement announcing the move.

The decision is a victory for progressive Democrats who have pushed President Joe Biden to endorse India and South Africa's call for a broad waiver of all intellectual property protections for Covid-19 vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics.

The announcement “is a critical step forward in the fight against Covid-19 and will be a game-changer in the global rush to put shots in arms and save lives," Rep. Earl Blumenauer said in statement. "What’s happening in India right now has made clear that time is of the essence."
