The United Nations wants Western leaders to discuss vaccine sharing at the upcoming G7 summit. The head of UNICEF, the U.N. children’s agency, asked G7 leaders to donate extra vaccines as an emergency stop-gap measure.

UNICEF Executive Director Henrietta Fore said in Monday’s press release:

“While some G7 members have greater supply than others, and some have further advanced domestic rollouts, an immediate collective commitment to pool excess supply and share the burden of responsibility could buttress vulnerable countries against becoming the next global hotspot.”

“There’s a very large disparity between the West and the global South area. For example, herd immunity is expected for North America and Europe by the end of 2021. In many regions of the world – for instance, in Africa – it’s not expected until 2023,” DOOR International’s Rob Myers says.

“And, many of you are aware that in Asia, several countries are seeing an incredible spike of COVID right now.”
