Global contrast to the pandemic, common strategy on the vaccine front, the investigation into the origins of Covid. This weekend’s G7 Summit in Cornwall, England will revolve around these three themes.

This is the first in-person meeting between G7 leaders since late spring 2019, as last year the incidence of the pandemic on a global scale caused the scheduled summit to be skipped.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will also bring other topics to the discussion table, including the fight against climate change on a global scale and coordinated action for the recovery of the global economy after this year and a half of the pandemic.
In addition to the G7 summit, Trudeau is planning to participate in the meeting of the countries of the Nadella pandemic of Covid-19 entrusted to intelligence in relation to the possibility of a virus leaking from the Wuhan virology laboratory, a hypothesis so far considered “extremely unlikely “by WHO experts.
The same request, again according to Bloomberg, should be contained in a draft of the declaration of the EU-US summit. In the draft of the final G7 communiqué, leaders will pledge to distribute an additional one billion doses of Covid-19 vaccines to accelerate global coronavirus immunization efforts.
According to the Washington Post, however, US President Joe Biden will announce the purchase of hundreds of millions of doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine to donate to the most disadvantaged countries.
According to Politico, the Biden Administration intends to purchase 500 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine for distribution to other countries.
The decision could lead to the distribution of 200 million doses as early as this year, with a further 300 million doses to be distributed in the first half of 2022.
