Gordon Brown calls on rich nations to transport vaccines by air

The former UK prime minister has called on richer countries to immediately airlift millions of surplus Covid vaccines to less developed nations.

Gordon Brown told BBC Breakfast that the risk of new mutations in countries that do not have access to vaccines means that “no one is safe anywhere, until everyone is vaccinated everywhere.”

Brown has put together a letter, signed by 160 former world leaders and world figures, calling for excess doses not to be wasted, as thousands die from the virus every day.

It is addressed to the Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, who this weekend welcomes the group of the main G20 economies in Rome.
