  • Calls for drug companies to share vaccine formulas grow as global COVID crisis worsens

    CBS News - 05/06/2021

    Brook Baker, a law professor at Northeastern University who specializes in intellectual property and access to medicines, told CBS News that the current system “has resulted in artificially restricted supplies, artificially high prices and grotesquely inequitable distribution.”

    “The waiver is saying we cannot let the status quo stand,” Baker said. “We cannot let those intellectual property protections stand in the way of mobilizing the kind of response that the pandemic requires, which is massively increasing vaccine production as quickly as possible and vaccinating everyone in the world as quickly as possible so that we get herd immunity before the virus mutates over and over again.”
