    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.

    “In times of trouble, Americans reach out to offer help,” Biden said. He added: “Our values call on us to do everything that we can to vaccinate the world against COVID-19.”

    Speaking before the meeting of the Group of Seven, Biden announced the U.S. commitment to vaccine sharing, which comes on top of 80 million doses he has already pledged by the end of the month.

    He says the other G7 nations would join the U.S. in outlining their vaccine donation commitments on Friday.
