BRUSSELS: A global campaign to fund the development of vaccines and therapies against COVID-19 has so far raised $10.4 billion, the head of the European Commission said on Tuesday, reports Reuters.

"Great result, reaching 1st milestone of GlobalResponse pledging marathon led by EU Commission," Ursula von der Leyen said on Twitter.

The pledging campaign, which the United States shunned, raised $8 billion from global leaders and other institutions on May 4, when it was launched.
