AstraZeneca must ‘catch up’ with Europe before exporting, says Ursula von der Leyen

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “AstraZeneca must ‘catch up’ with Europe before exporting, says Ursula von der Leyen” – below is their description.

The European Commission president has warned AstraZeneca that it must “honour” its vaccine contract with the bloc before exporting doses elsewhere in the world.

Ursula von der Leyen urged “transparency” from other countries, but did not confirm if the EU would bring in tougher export restrictions on coronavirus jabs, amid a row over supplies with the British-Swedish pharmaceutical giant.
