Peter J. Hotez

To introduce American Society for Microbiology, or ASM, Microbe 2020 virtual meeting, Peter J. Hotez, MD, PhD, discussed vaccine diplomacy and the impact of COVID - 19 on Global Health during the opening keynote address. My comments were mainly looking at 30 000 foot aerial view of where I see COVID - 19 fitting into the larger spectrum of Global Health, Hotez told Healio. Deborah Birx, MD, US Global AIDS Coordinator and US Special Representative for Global Health, and Stefano Bertuzzi, PhD, MPH, CEO of ASM, also participated in keynote, addressing issues such as science in the postpandemic environment. Hotez notes that there has been a general decline in global health advances over the past few years due to slowing, halting and even reversal of major health gains arising from factors including war, climate change, urbanization and the rise of anti - science movements. In middle of this, COVID - 19 came along and is accelerating some of those declines, interrupting public health control in many cases and causing even more widespread destabilization, he say. Hotez concludes by saying that efforts are ongoing to accelerate low - cost COVID - 19 vaccine produced in yeast in a way similar to the hepatitis B vaccine.
