Former UK Prime Minister and NGO consider G7 summit a failure

The event was supposed to be the first major summit for recovery from Covid-19 but it was not, Kirsty McNeill assured, who is the NGO’s Director of Policy and Campaigns, in a video posted on social media on Monday.

The activist said she was incredibly disappointed with the offer made by leaders of the seven richest nations on the planet to donate one billion vaccines to poor countries next year.

According to McNeill, preparations against Covid-19 will be a year late because that amount is what is needed this summer to immunize part of the population in developing countries.

She added that Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States also failed to heed Save the Children’s request to approve the release of patents that would allow each country to produce its own vaccines, and help pay for pandemic recovery.

After all, they are the richest in the world and we asked them to foot the bill for poor nations, but so far we haven’t seen any new money, she ensured.
