G-20 Set to Pledge to Ensure Fair Distribution of Covid Vaccines

Leaders of the world’s biggest economies on Sunday will dedicate themselves to financing equal access to Covid-19 testing, treatments and vaccines, and will encourage bondholders to provide private relief to poor countries, according to a draft of their statement.

On medicines and vaccines, the Group of 20 will vow to “spare no effort to ensure their affordable and equitable access for all people, consistent with members’ commitments to incentivize innovation,” according to the draft obtained by Bloomberg News. “We recognize the role of extensive immunization as a global public good.”

The leaders will acknowledge a lack of participation by private creditors in the G-20 debt relief plan, known as the Debt Service Suspension Initiative, and will “strongly encourage” them to participate on comparable terms to official bilateral creditors, according to the draft. It also plans to encourage multilateral development banks to do more to support the initiative, which last month was extended through June.

Reuters earlier reported the G-20 plans.

Governments will recognize that debt treatments beyond the initiative may be required on a case-by-case basis given the scale of the crisis, citing the “significant debt vulnerabilities and deteriorating outlook” in many low-income countries. The G-20 will endorse the Common Framework for debt treatments beyond the plan, according to the draft.

Liam Hemsworth sells fire-damaged Malibu house for nearly half the price

Liam Hemsworth is cutting his losses and moving on, despite losing millions in the bargain.

The “Hunger Games” star has sold his 7.4 acre Malibu estate that he shared with his ex-wife Miley Cyrus for the bargain basement price of $3.6 million — almost half of what he bought it for in 2014.

The cut rate price is due to the Woolsey Fire that ravaged the area and the home in 2018, burning it almost to the ground.

The unidentified buyer bought the two lots the former home stood on, a burned out concrete foundation, “an untouched pool, plus acres of semi-charred rolling hills,” according to Dirt.

Back in 2014, when Hemsworth bought the property for $6.8 million, the site notes the spread included “a long driveway that meandered over a gurgling creek, an updated 1950s ranch-style house, a recording studio, detached writing studio, concrete barn, and a big grassy lawn. The property is nestled deep into the rolling Malibu hills, within a private gated community where other homeowners include Megan Fox, Emmy-winning producers Marcy Carsey and Richard Appel, and helicopter heiress Cindy Robinson.”

Cyrus loved the place so much she wrote her song “Malibu” about it and bought the smaller house next door — which somehow survived the fire and which she still owns.

As for Hemsworth, he now lives outside Sydney, Australia and dropped $4.25 million on a spread in Byron Bay.
