G7 leaders pledge to share 1bn doses of coronavirus vaccine with world


The Group of Seven nations (G7) are set to commit to sharing at least 1 billion coronavirus shots with the world, AP reported.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced this Thursday, with half coming from the U.S. and 100 million from the U.K. as US President Joe Biden urged allies to join in speeding the pandemic’s end and bolstering the strategic position of the world’s wealthiest democracies.

Johnson’s announcement on the eve of the G-7 leaders’ summit in England came hours after Biden committed to donating 500 million COVID-19 vaccine doses and previewed a coordinated effort by the advanced economies to make vaccination widely and speedily available everywhere.

From 2021 to 2022, the US will ship a total of 500 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine to nearly 100 countries.

Earlier Thursday, French President Emmanuel Macron welcomed the U.S. commitment and said Europe should do the same. He said France would share at least 30 million doses globally by year’s end.

“I think the European Union needs to have at least the same level of ambition as the United States,” he said at a news conference.
