EU to build vaccine-manufacturing hubs in Africa

The European Union (EU) intends to invest 1.2 billion dollars to build COVID vaccine manufacturing hubs in Africa.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen made the announcement at a summit in Rome

She said the EU will also donate at least 100 million doses of coronavirus vaccines to low- and middle-income countries by the end of the year.

At the Covid summit in Rome, one of the leading vaccine manufacturers Pfizer/BioNTech, announced it would make two billion doses available at a lower cost to poorer countries over the next 18 months.

The meeting in the Italian capital which was partly virtual, seeks to coordinate global efforts to combat the pandemic.
