Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “EU planning tougher Covid vaccine export controls” – below is their description.

Boris Johnson has warned European leaders that they could scare companies away from investing if they impose blockades on vaccine exports.

He was speaking shortly after the European Commission set out tougher rules which would allow it to stop exports of vaccines to countries that they think aren’t playing fair.

The European commissioner in charge of the plan said it wasn’t aimed at one country, but also pointed out that the EU had sent ten million doses to the UK but zero had gone the other way.
