Put fighting COVID before fighting humans

Today Dominic Raab, the UK's Foreign Secretary has called for ceasefires around the world, so that vulnerable people living in conflict zones can be vaccinated and protected against Covid-19.

  • Global vaccination coverage is essential to beating coronavirus. Allowing the virus to spread in areas without vaccination campaigns means a greater risk of new variants taking hold – risking further waves.
  • That is why Britain is calling for a vaccination ceasefire to allow Covid-19 vaccines to reach people living in conflict zones, and for a greater global effort to support equal access to vaccines so that the most vulnerable people can be protected from the virus.
  • The only way to be protected from Covid-19 is by making vaccinations available to everyone – and Britain will use our presidency of the UN Security Council this month to lead the international effort to eliminate the threat of the virus both domestically and overseas.
