These comments were just the latest in the escalating tensions between the EU and UK regarding vaccinations.
An increasing number of EU leaders are pointing at the Commission to criticise the slow pace of negotiations, the regulation process and the small numbers of orders.
German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz reportedly even called the EU vaccine programme a “total s**t show.”
Commission President Ursula von der Leyen also hit back at Britain and critics saying she was “tired” of the Commission being a “scapegoat” for the slow vaccine rollout.
She instead blamed AstraZeneca for having massively under-delivered in the first quarter of 2021.
Brussels journalist Dave Keating tweeted: “I’ve just been told some firm EU vaccine export figures by an EU source. Vaccine doses exported from EU to: UK: 9 million; Canada: 4 million; Mexico: 3 million and United States: 1 million – total: 35 million.
“Vaccine exports to EU from UK, Canada, Mexico and USA: zero”.
