Call on G7 leaders to pledge to help global population be vaccinated against coronavirus by the end of 2022 Boris Johnson.

The British Prime Minister will host the first G7 summit in almost two years – after a meeting of the Group of Seven finance ministers concluded yesterday – and said he would pursue a commitment to the goal of global vaccination. .

“Vaccinating the entire population of the planet by the end of next year will be the greatest achievement in the history of medicine”, said the British Prime Minister in a statement. “I call on our fellow G7 leaders to join forces to end this horrific pandemic and to pledge that we will never allow the coronavirus disaster to happen again.”.

The G7 summit will be held in Cornwall in the south-west of England on June 11-13, with the participation of US President Joe Biden.

While the world’s richest countries have vaccinated large sections of their populations against Covid-19, many poorer countries do not have the same access to vaccines. Health experts have warned that unless more vaccines are distributed, the virus will continue to spread and mutate.

US Treasury Secretary Janet Glenn, who was in London for the G7 finance ministers’ meeting, said there was an urgent need for richer countries to promote vaccinations to poorer countries that could not afford vaccines.

He reiterated the US position on the abolition of intellectual property for Covid-19 vaccines, and noted that the US is doing everything possible to address supply chain problems that prevent vaccinations in other parts of the world.

Britain has ordered more than 500 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine for its population of 67 million and says it will donate as many doses as it needs.
