Covid jab figures prove the EU is anything but united, with poorer countries left lagging dangerously behind

8 6 7

Lord knows the European Union could do with a win, so it’s no surprise that the video of a beaming European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen is all over the place as she celebrates the news that 70% of the bloc’s adults have now been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

But first, a warning. If you suffer from seasickness then you’ll need to drop a couple of hyoscine tablets before watching her Twitter short, because the poor woman constantly sways from side to side as she speaks as if standing on the deck of a cross-channel ferry experiencing a particularly heavy swell. It makes you want to grab for the rails and heave your lunch, such is the nauseating effect. Or maybe that’s just me.

70% of adults in EU are fully vaccinated.I want to thank the many people making this great achievement possible.But we must go further!We need more Europeans to vaccinate. And we need to help the rest of the world vaccinate, too. We'll continue supporting our partners.........
