EU rejects claims of vaccine nationalism

China Daily | Updated: 2021-03-11 00:00

BRUSSELS-European Council President Charles Michel on Tuesday rejected charges of vaccine nationalism leveled against the EU, claiming that while Britain and the United States have outright bans on exports of COVID-19 shots, the EU had not followed suit.

The EU has found itself under fire at home for a vaccine rollout that is much slower than those of former member Britain or the US, and abroad for so far doing less than some countries to supply vaccines to poor nations.

Last week it annoyed vaccine buyers overseas by endorsing an Italian decision to halt a shipment to Australia.
