GLOBAL LEADERS DISCUSS BATTLING COVID-19 ON THE WORLD STAGE: Global leaders gather for a virtual session during the Paris Peace Forum to discuss battling the COVID-19 pandemic and the World Health Organization’s ‘ACT Accelerator’ program to develop vaccines, treatments, and diagnostics. Speakers will include French President Emmanuel Macron, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, and other public health, political, and business figures. The virus, which was first discovered roughly a year ago, has since infected more than 52.3 million people worldwide and caused almost 1.3 million deaths. Though the United States continues to lead the world in both cases and deaths—recently reporting a record-breaking 142k new infections in a single day—it is not one of the more than 150 countries that have agreed to participate in the WHO-backed program. The White House announced in early September their intention to sit out the cooperative effort.
