The leader of the World Health Organisation has urged G20 countries to follow the lead of the US by sharing vaccine doses, APA reports citing The Guardian.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he had met with ambassador Erica Barks-Ruggles, a US department of state official, and thanked America for its “leadership in sharing vaccine doses.”

He tweeted: “We hope other G20 leaders will build on this and ensure all countries have enough supply to reach 40% coverage by the end of 2021.”
