Now, we can wait and see how G-7 allies will cooperate with Biden’s call for vaccine distribution. G-7 includes countries like the United States, Canada, Germany, Japan, Britain, France,  and Italy.

Emmanual Macron, the French President in an interview has asked the US and other European countries to give five per cent of current vaccine supplies to developing countries.

U.N Secretary-General Antony Guterres remarked that the Covid-19, vaccines are distributed unevenly. More than 75% of the vaccine is distributed in 10 countries only.

Trump was against COVAX, due to its ties with WHO.  Trump had accused that the World Health Organization, had covered China’s faults in handling the virus spread. Biden joined back in WHO, as soon as he came to power, Trump had pulled the US out of World Health Organization, earlier.

In the virtual meet conducted by the G-7 countries, another issue that was given importance is the economic challenges and the collective competitiveness posed by China.  Biden has also plans to visit Pfizer’s vaccine manufacturing facility.
