EU debate LIVE: ‘European way’ Deluded Von der Leyen praises shambolic EU vaccine roll-out | Politics | News

VDL has vowed to help vaccinate lower economically developed countries outside the EU.

She said: “With less than 1 percent of global doses administered in low income countries, a scale of injustice and the level of urgency is obvious.

“This is one of the great geopolitical issues in our time.

“Team Europe is investing 1 billion euro to ramp production capacity with Africa.

“We have already committed to share 250 million doses of vaccine.

“I can announce today that the Commission will add a new donation of another 200 million doses until the middle of next year.

“This is an investment in solidarity, and it is an investment, also in global health.”
