EC chief tells AstraZeneca to keep delivery timeline

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen told AstraZeneca plc CEO Pascal Soriot that she expects that the company respects the coronavirus vaccine delivery timeline for the European Union.

Von der Leyen "reminded Mr Soriot that the EU has invested significant amounts in the company upfront precisely to ensure production is ramped up even before the conditional market authorisation is delivered by the EMA [European Medicines Agency]," her spokesperson said in a statement relayed by RTE Europe on Monday.

Meanwhile, Sky News reported that representatives of the bloc's member states will convene today to voice their outrage with the delivery delays.
