Emmanuel Macron accuses UK and US of hoarding Covid vaccines

Emmanuel Macron accused Britain and the United States of blocking coronavirus vaccine exports on Friday.

The French president said he would be willing to consider a call earlier this week by Joe Biden to waive Covid-19 vaccine patents but he said it was far more important in the global fight against the pandemic for the USA to end export restrictions on the jabs.

A day after the Royal Navy and French gunboats faced off in the waters round Jersey in a row over Brexit fishing licences, Mr Macron also took aim at Britain for not exporting a single coronavirus jab.

"Today, the Anglo-Saxons block many of these ingredients and vaccines," the ardently pro-EU leader told reporters as he arrived at a summit in Porto.
