Egypt will purchases 20 million doses of Sinopharm vaccine
Egypt will purchase 20 million doses of the China produced Sinopharm vaccine. Egypt is expecting a batch of 500,000 jabs this month, its health ministry has said.
The move will boost vaccination efforts in Egypt, who have received only 1.5 million doses of Sinopharm and of the AstraZeneca vaccines – despite having a population of over 100 million.
Egypt has already announced it is preparing to produce 80 million doses of the vaccine produced by China’s Sinovac.
