Summit leaders have announced their commitment to collectively provide at least 1 billion coronavirus vaccine doses to the world through dose sharing and financing and set out a plan to expand vaccine manufacturing in order to achieve that goal.
The target to vaccinate the world by the end of next year would be met “very largely thanks to the efforts of the countries who have come here today” UK Prime Minister Mr Johnson said.
Mr Johnson went on to say “Already of the 1.5 billion vaccines that have been distributed around the world, I think that people in this country should be very proud that half a billion of them are as a result of the actions taken by the UK government in doing that deal with the Oxford scientists and AstraZeneca to distribute it at cost.”
