Johnson also set out a plan for preventing another global pandemic, including a network of zoonotic research labs around the world to identify dangerous pathogens before they leap from animals to humans. He went on to commit, on behalf of the British government, 636 million US dollars through the global COVAX vaccine-procurement pool.
He announced that the UK is boosting its funding for the World Health Organization by 30 per cent to 432 million US dollar for next four years.
