Pope Francis urges fair distribution of vaccines in Easter message

Pope Francis has urged for the fair and speedy distribution of vaccines to developing nations in his Easter message.

He delivered his Urbi et Orbi blessing to just 200 people at a socially-distanced ceremony in Rome.

In a normal year a thousand would pack out St Peter's Basilica for Easter Sunday mass -- with over ten thousand more in the square outside.

The Pope says vaccinations can't come soon enough.
