EU chief von der Leyen compares fight for Covid vaccine supplies to the Cold War space race - hours after bloc turned to Russia for help with their inoculation disaster

EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen today compared vaccine nationalism to the Cold War space race.

The beleaguered Brussels chief said this 'old confrontational mindset' akin to US-Soviet tensions was not helping global efforts to beat coronavirus.

She told students at Warwick University: 'Some countries see the quest for a vaccine as a race amongst global powers, like the space race in the 1960s.'
