The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has walked back information posted on its website just three days ago, which stated Covid-19 can spread through aerosolized droplets. The CDC now says Friday's guidance was posted "in error," and that new information will be issued shortly. The move is yet another misstep for the nation's leading public health agency, which recently reversed its guidance for the second time on testing asymptomatic people for the coronavirus. Aired on 09/21/2020.

✔️ Bill Gates, Co-Chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, delivers a video message at the high-level side event "Accelerating the end of the COVID-19 pandemic".
This event hosted by The World Health Organization (WHO), the United Kingdom, South Africa, and the UN Secretary-General aims to build stronger political consensus for a coordinated global response to COVID-19 and champion the importance and urgency of equitable access to new tools, especially effective vaccines.

The Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator, is a groundbreaking global collaboration to accelerate development, production, and equitable access to COVID-19 tests, treatments, and vaccines.
