    Merkel says vaccine patent waiver ‘not the solution’ – as it happened

    Albert Bourla, chief executive of Pfizer, said on Friday the proposed waiver would disrupt progress made so far in boosting vaccine supplies. “It will unleash a scramble for the critical inputs we require in order to make a safe and effective vaccine.
