US very concerned about Delta variant threat to global economic recovery – Lusa

“We are very concerned about the Delta variant and other variants that could emerge and threaten recovery [económica]. We are in a connected global economy, what happens anywhere in the world affects every other country,” said Janet Yellen during a press conference outside the G20.

“The variants pose a threat to the entire world,” he insisted, calling for “joint work to accelerate the vaccination process and target the vaccination of 70% of the world’s population next year.”

When it comes to vaccines, “we need to do more and be more effective,” the Treasury secretary said.

On Saturday, G20 finance ministers, meeting in Venice, warned of “negative risks” for the global economic recovery due to “the spread of new variants of the new coronavirus and different rates of vaccination”.

If in recent months the world economic situation “has improved, mainly thanks to increased vaccination”, the G20 recalled in its last statement that the crisis page has not yet been turned.

The highly contagious Delta variant of SARS-CoV-2 continues to impede the resumption of activities around the world. It is causing epidemic outbreaks in Asia and Africa and the number of cases is increasing in Europe and the United States.
