US to buy 'millions' of Pfizer doses for donations - report

The United States intends to acquire "hundreds of millions" additional doses of a COVID-19 vaccine developed by Pfizer/BioNTech, which it later plans to distribute as donations, The Washington Post reported on Friday, citing two people "familiar with the deal."

The announcement of the agreement between the US and the company is expected early next week, the report explained.

Previous reports hinted that US President Joe Biden looks to push the global leaders to back his targets for ending the coronavirus outbreak at the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly.
