The International Monetary Fund wants to speed up the coronavirus vaccine rollout to get more shots in arms this year. The group says it would like to see at least 40-percent of the world’s population vaccinated by year’s end. The group also wants that number to grow to 60-percent by June of next year.

Meantime, the IMF is calling for 50-billion dollars to be put toward efforts to distribute the vaccines faster. The IMF claims the global economy would experience returns of nine-trillion dollars if money is set aside for faster vaccine distribution.
