G7 Commits to Initial Delivery of 1 Billion Vaccines to Developing Countries

They support a new study on the origins of the pandemic, “China included”

The Group of Seven (G7) made up of Germany, Canada, the United States, France, Italy, Japan and the United Kingdom has committed to delivering 1 billion vaccines to developing countries over the next 12 months with a view to a total, as anticipated by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, of 2,300 million vaccines by the end of 2022, as they have made known this Sunday in the final statement of the summit held in Cornwall (United Kingdom).

In the text, the signatories recall their commitment to “provide a total of more than two billion doses of vaccines” and to “create the appropriate frameworks to strengthen the collective defense against threats to global health.”

The G7 expresses its intention to adopt measures to develop “manufacturing capacity on all continents; improve early warning systems; and support science in a mission to shorten the cycle for the development of safe and effective vaccines, treatments and tests”.

Likewise, the G7 also supports the initiative of the World Health Organization (WHO) for new research on the origins of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We ask for timely, transparent, expert-led advice, as well as Phase 2 of the study on the origins (of the pandemic), including China, as recommended by the experts themselves,” according to the final statement.
