By adding my signature to this campaign, I am urging governments and leaders all over the world to take, without delay, the following steps to combat the coronavirus crisis:
- Implement a large increase in the daily testing capacity by mobilizing the necessary resources of public and private sector partners;
- Launch a massive, randomized testing programme to establish both whether citizens currently have COVID-19, or have acquired immunity to it;
- Facilitate the adoption of a global standard for tracing infected people and those who have been in contact with them, without endangering citizens’ human rights and privacy; and
- Put in place mechanisms for collecting infection and immunity data, and establish measures and guidelines for citizens to act accordingly.
