World leaders gathering in south west England will announce a plan to help vaccinate poorer countries by the end of next year. At the G7 summit in Cornwall, they will pledge to provide one billion doses of Covid-19 vaccines. The move aims to address criticism that wealthy nations have secured the vast majority of vaccines against coronavirus for themselves. Meeting UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson ahead of the summit, President Joe Biden said the US would donate 500 million vaccine shots.
In many African countries very few people have received even one dose. And just a month ago India was breaking records with its numbers of new cases and deaths, and a shortage of vaccines. The South Asian country has been one of the worst affected by the pandemic. So can this vaccine offer make a real difference?
