Covid-19: Vaccine export ban ‘a slippery slope’, says Euro official

European Parliament vice-president Nicola Beer says heads of state must turn the EU summit on boosting vaccine supplies and distribution into a global response to the coronavirus pandemic.

The European Commission is seeking added controls on vaccine exports.
