Matt Hancock – 2021 Comments on Helping Other Countries with Vaccines

The comments made by Matt Hancock, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, on 1 February 2021.

This pandemic has shown that the foundations of so many of the exciting experiences that make life worth living are contingent not just on our health, or the health of our neighbours, but the health of people across the world.

The new variants of coronavirus have demonstrated this once again so we must work to promote health security right across the world.

Our New Variant Assessment Platform will help us better understand this virus and how it spreads and will also boost global capacity to understand coronavirus so we’re all better prepared for whatever lies ahead.
