Prime Minister Boris Johnson co-hosts a major international conference to drive forward the global race for coronavirus vaccines, treatments and tests.
The Prime Minister’s call to action comes during the virtual Coronavirus Global Response International Pledging Conference, which is co-hosted by the UK and eight other countries and organisations.
He will confirm the UK’s pledge of £388 million in UK aid funding for research into vaccines, tests and treatments – part of a larger £744 million existing UK aid commitment to help end the pandemic and support the global economy.
