Coronavirus is bringing the world to a standstill.
But pharmaceutical companies are racing forward to develop a treatment. And if we leave it up to them, they'll charge a fortune for it.
Every day, hundreds of people are dying from this virus -- we absolutely can’t let Big Pharma call the shots. More than ever we need a HUGE outcry calling for free testing and treatment to everyone who needs it.
Let’s quickly get a million people signed on, and SumOfUs will launch a massive media blitz with our message. Add your name and share this with friends and family.
For context: the company that’s developing a vaccine is the same company that charges $2000/month for HIV treatment! We urgently need to ramp up pressure to make sure they don’t get to decide who lives and who dies.
A vaccine is still likely a year away from being ready, but a treatment plan for those already infected could come as early as June.
And it’s not just the treatment that should be free -- people everywhere should be able to get tested for free as well. In fact, fear of huge medical bills will keep those potentially infected away from getting tested, and by now, we all know what that means -- more spreading of the virus.
But we have a chance to change this. During times of crisis like this, public pressure is especially powerful as governments everywhere are on edge. Let’s build a huge outcry about this and share it far and wide -- together we can help save millions of people from this awful virus.
The SumOfUs community was built for moments like this. Let’s flex our muscles and do everything in our power to stop corporate greed and help protect people everywhere.
