The G7 countries have not made enough efforts to combat the coronavirus pandemic, although they have announced their intention to provide the world’s population with 1 billion doses of coronavirus vaccines. This was stated by UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres at the summit of the “Seven” in the English county of Cornwall.
“It is clear that we need more than that. Bilateral forms of support and initiatives of individual countries are not enough. We need a concerted effort, and therefore we need a global vaccination plan, “ he said, commenting on the British cabinet’s statement that the G7 will provide at least 1 billion doses of vaccines to other countries.
According to the UN Secretary-General, all countries that produce and develop effective vaccines are obliged to create a special working group that guarantees the implementation of such a plan. Guterres called on manufacturing companies to share knowledge and technology. He stressed that in the absence of a global program of action in the poorest countries in the world, “ the virus will spread with the speed of a forest fire.”
