The health ministry announced on Sunday that China has now given more than one billion doses of anti-Covid vaccines, although without specifying the percentage of the population that has received full vaccination.
In total, 1.01 billion doses have already been given, according to the health ministry. He also revealed 23 new patients in 24 hours on Sunday. However, all these are people coming from abroad, who in any case without contact with the rest of the population, are automatically placed in quarantine.
Only two deaths from Kovid-19 have been recorded in China in 13 months. Shops, restaurants and bars reopened in spring 2020 and public opinion in general is very satisfied with the government’s handling of the crisis.
China expects to vaccinate at least 70% of its population, or about a billion people, by the end of the year.
Four vaccines, all Chinese, are currently authorized in China: private laboratory Sinovac, two public giant Sinopharm and one pharmaceutical company CanSino Biologics.
German company BioNTech’s vaccine could also get a green signal in the coming months, thanks in part to an agreement with a local partner, especially.
