With the U.K. taking on the presidency of the G7 group in 2021, Prime Minister Boris Johnson hosted an in-person G7 summit from June 11 to 13 in Carbis Bay, a picturesque resort in Cornwall, the southwestern extremity of England. The objective was to unite leading democracies to help the world fight and then build back better from the coronavirus pandemic.

The G7 members agreed to the Carbis Bay Health Declaration, a historic statement setting out a series of concrete commitments to prevent any repeat of the human and economic devastation caused by pandemics like COVID-19. This is important for the future insurability of pandemic risk. The G7 leaders were joined in their discussions on global health by their counterparts from South Korea, South Africa, Australia and India, the UN secretary-general, and by other leaders of international organizations ­— recognizing the need to tackle the roots of the coronavirus pandemic on a global level.
