G7 to donate one billion COVID-19 vaccine doses to poorer countries

China might not be a member of the G7, but it is set to dominate discussions as leaders gather for their first meeting in two years. The G7 wants to lead the world out of the COVID-19 pandemic, starting with an ambitious plan to vaccinate the global population within two years. It is set to donate one billion COVID-19 vaccine doses to poorer nations. The US has pledged 500 million Pfizer shots, while Britain has committed 100 million surplus doses. Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson wants to propose the "D10", an expanded alliance of democratic nations to counter China.
