Open letter to G7 leaders (UK, France, Italy, Germany, Canada, US and Japan) Calls on countries to allocate at least 20% of their vaccine stocks to poor countries between June and August, or equivalent 150 million doses.
The G7 summit will take place in the UK from Friday (11).
“The world has spent a year and a half fighting the Covid-19 pandemic, but the virus continues to spread to many countries and produce new forms, with the risk of taking us back to where we started”, say the letters from Celebrity.
“This means more school closures, more interruptions of medical care and more economic consequences, which threaten the future of families and children everywhere,” the text said.
The signatories, which include several UNICEF Goodwill Ambassadors, include Liam Neeson, Orlando Bloom, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Whoopi Goldberg.
The letter was also signed by sports stars such as singers Katy Perry and Angelique Kidjo and Sergio Ramos, pilot Fernando Alonso and tennis player Andy Murray.
