20-Year-Old Man Arrested For Bomb Hoax Near G7 Summit

Biden at the 2021 G7 Summit: Live updates

The leaders are expected to discuss measures to end the pandemic. Among them, reducing the time required for the development and authorization of vaccines and treatments for any disease in less than 100 days, strengthening global surveillance networks and genomic sequencing capacity, and support to reform and strengthen the World Health Organization (WHO), reports BBC.

"For the first time today the world's leading democracies have come together to make sure that never again will we be caught unawares", British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in remarks released ahead of the summit's second day.

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.

We discuss the key themes of the summit and whether Brexit overshadowed the prime minister's efforts to forward his Global Britain agenda.

The G7 chiefs will be joined over the weekend by the leaders of Australia, South Africa, South Korea, the United Nations and European Union, with India joining remotely. "The next stage is for those who have tested positive to undertake a PCR test". "To be able to meet Joe Biden for the first time is of course something important, because he represents the commitment to multilateralism that we have lacked in recent years".

Gunman opens fire in Austin, Texas, wounds 13 before escaping
One suspect has been arrested, according to the Austin-American Statesman, though Fox News has not yet confirmed that report . Eleven of the wounded were taken to one local hospital and the other two were taken to other hospitals, the chief said.

The big powers' first face-to-face meeting since 2019 - after the pandemic led to the cancellation of last year's summit - will aim for a more unified stance towards an increasingly assertive Beijing and recalcitrant Moscow.

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

Campaigners say the G7's vaccine donations pledge for this year and next - including 500 million USA doses - is far too little, too late to end a pandemic that has claimed over 3.7 million lives worldwide.

"But it is vital that we don't repeat the mistake of the last great crisis, the last great economic recession of 2008, when the recovery was not uniform across all parts of society".
