US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Thursday called on China to share information on its Covid outbreak, saying its surging caseload impacted the world, and renewed an offer to share US vaccines.

“It is very important for all countries, including China, to focus on people getting vaccinated, making testing and treatment available and, importantly, sharing information with the world about what they’re experiencing — because it has implications not just for China, but for the entire world,” Blinken told a news conference.
