Vaccines, Unicef appeal to G7 for doses to poorer countries
Millions of Covid vaccines risk being wasted if rich countries send large quantities of remaining doses to poorer ones at once: a constant supply is needed throughout the year because these countries do not have the resources to use them. all together. This is the appeal to the G7 nations launched by Unicef and signed by stars such as Billie Eilish and David Beckham. In a letter sent to the Group of Seven, UNICEF asks Italy, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States to donate 20% of their vaccines by August. Among the other signatories of the letter, reports the BBC, are Ewan McGregor, Liam Payne, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Orlando Bloom, Katy Perry, Whoopi Goldberg and Claudia Schiffer.
