Leaders of the major industrial nations have pledged more than two billion doses of coronavirus vaccines to poor countries as a "big step towards vaccinating the world." This is reported by DW.

It is noted that most of the doses will be supplied through the World Health Organization's Covax scheme. The main funding will be provided by the leading Western industrial countries, in particular the European Union.

The document notes that since February, pledges have been received to finance or supply one billion doses of coronavirus vaccines. This number includes nearly half a billion doses pledged by the US for the period 2021-2022 and 100 million doses from the UK. Unlike the European Union, the United States has only now authorized the export of coronavirus vaccines.

The numbers vary, in part because many of the doses already funded through Covax are only now due to be procured and delivered.

"We will work together with the private sector, the G20 and other countries to increase this contribution over the months to come," the message reads.

Meanwhile, President of European Council Charles Michel has urged the leaders of G7 to bring expenses for conservation of climate up to the sum of $100 billion as Michel reported on Twitter.

 “The EU is leading the fight against climate change. We call upon our partners to join EU efforts on climate finance to reach USD 100 billion per year goal in support of developing countries,” Michel noted.
