Written by wave FM on March 25, 2021
German Chancellor ANGELA MERKEL has defended the EU’s decision to procure coronavirus vaccines jointly as the bloc struggles with delays in rollout.
European Union leaders are holding virtual talks to discuss vaccine supplies and improving distribution across the 27 nations.
Pressure is mounting upon them to deliver after other countries, like the United Kingdom, achieved much faster vaccination.
The European Commission is seeking added controls on vaccine exports.
