Jinping made this announcement at the International Forum on COVID-19 Vaccine Cooperation, which was organized by China through digital medium. According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, these figures will probably also include those 77 crore doses, which China has already donated or exported since September last year. Most of the vaccines from China have been exported through bilateral deals. It is not clear whether this figure includes agreements with the Covax facility, where the two Chinese vaccine makers will provide up to 550 million doses.
Will give $100 million for Kovax
Along with this, Jinping also offered to donate $100 million to the World Health Organization (WHO)-backed COVAX initiative, according to the Xinhua News Agency. Covax aims to distribute the vaccine to low- and middle-income countries. Millions of Chinese vaccines have been administered to people in many countries around the world because many countries were ready to receive any vaccine. Most of these are produced by Sinofarm and Sinovac.
Vaccine shortage a concern
Questions and concerns have also arisen regarding the vaccine. Especially after the spread of the highly contagious delta form and the number of deaths due to COVID-19. China has been accused of using vaccines to take advantage of diplomatic deals. Japan has also increased its donations to the region. Has promised to give three crore doses through Covax and other means. China is taking many steps to promote its vaccine. Even he had issued instructions by tightening the visa rules that it would be necessary to get a Chinese vaccine to come to China.
