More than 150 nations join global coronavirus vaccine plan, but US and China absent

US President Donald Trump’s government has already secured future supplies through bilateral deals, prompting accusations of selfish behaviour to the detriment of poor countries.

But alliance officials said dialogue continued with Beijing.
