Emmanuel Macron has said Europe will not block or ban exports of coronavirus vaccines but that they should be “controlled”, accusing AstraZeneca of a lack of transparency after the British-Swedish pharmaceutical company said it could not fulfil the whole of its contract with the EU.
In an interview with the Guardian and a small group of other media, the French president insisted it was in everyone’s interest for all countries to have access to vaccines.
