Events in April include a Climate Assembly of world leaders hosted by U.S. President Joe Biden, the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga to the White House, and the launching of the core module of China’s own space station.

April: European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen expects around 100 million vaccine doses a month to arrive from April, even as many EU states battle a third wave of Covid-19. The EU has faced criticism over its slow vaccination rollout
