Former UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown says the G7 summit "will go down as a missed opportunity" due to the lack of a plan to deliver 11 billion Covid-19 vaccine doses.
Speaking to Sky News' Trevor Phillips on Sunday programme, he also says the lack of vaccine distribution to poorer countries will "haunt the richest" nations because of the possibility of the emergence of new variants of the virus, reports the BBC.
"When we needed 11 billion vaccines, we have only got offered a plan for one billion... I think this summit will also go down as an unforgivable moral failure, when the richest countries are sitting around the table with the power to do something about it," he said.
"Now that we have discovered the vaccine, we have not set out the comprehensive plan that will deliver vaccination by the middle of next year. Millions of people will go unvaccinated and thousands will die."
