United States President Joe Biden is calling on global leaders to follow his lead in sharing coronavirus vaccines with struggling nations around the world.
He promised the U.S. would donate 500 million doses to help speed the pandemic’s end and bolster the strategic position of the world’s wealthiest democracies.
