G7 summit to open soon in Cornwall, England

G7 summit to open soon in Cornwall, England

G7 leaders are to commit to using all their resources in an effort to ensure the devastation caused by a pandemic like Covid-19 is never repeated.

The collective steps include slashing the time taken to develop and license vaccines, treatments and diagnostics for any future disease to under 100 days, while reinforcing global surveillance networks.

Underpinning the US-led diplomatic revival, Biden and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson on Thursday adopted a new "Atlantic Charter", modeled on the pact signed by their World War II predecessors to help build a new world order.

Devon and Cornwall Police confirmed officers carried out a vehicle stop on a auto and a van near Loggans Road in Hayle - about seven miles from the Carbis Bay Hotel.

After Friday's talks, the leaders were joined the Queen for a dinner at the nearby Eden Project. Boris Johnson and Joe Biden appeared to develop a bromance - despite their split on Northern Ireland.

Mr Johnson will say the agreement will go some way to meeting the goal of preventing a pandemic like Covid-19 from "ever happening again". The prime minister added: "We have been enjoying ourselves - in spite of appearances".

The group of leading economies - Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States - will also try to showcase Western democratic cohesion against a resurgent China and recalcitrant Russian Federation.

Kyrsten Sinema , D-Ariz., have frustrated their party by their defense of the filibuster. The Democratic-controlled House of Representatives has already approved the legislation.

Two top European Union politicians are also attending the summit.

As part of the Carbis Bay Declaration, the United Kingdom will set up a centre to develop vaccines to prevent zoonotic diseases spreading from animals to humans.

Globally, more than 175 million people have had the infection since the outbreak began, with over 3.7 million Covid-related deaths, according to America's Johns Hopkins university.

Environmental activists bombarded Johnson´s Twitter feed with suggestions that the prime minister should practice what he preaches after he posted a photo of himself climbing off the plane accompanied by a call to make the world "better, fairer and greener". German Chancellor Angela Merkel is there for the last time.

The declaration is expected to incorporate recommendations from a report by a group of worldwide experts drawn from across industry, government and scientific institutions. "The next stage is for those who have tested positive to undertake a PCR test".

Dr Tedros stressed that "the world needs a stronger global surveillance system to detect new epidemic and pandemic risks".
