The Health Ministry in Syria received on Monday a million anti-Coronavirus vaccine doses, as well as laboratory requirements supplies to diagnose infections, provided by the People’s Republic of China.
“Vaccines and lab supplies will support the health sector to deal with the Corona epidemic. This vaccine batch is an indication of the interest of China to enhance and maintain relations with Syria in different aspects,” Health Minister, Hassan al-Ghabash, said in a statement to reporters.
In turn, the ambassador of the People’s Republic of China in Damascus, Feng Biao, said that his country is exerting its utmost efforts to support the global response to combating coronavirus and to achieve larger international cooperation in this aspect, particularly with the emergence of new variants.
The Ambassador regretted that “some western countries don’t support efforts exerted to deliver vaccines to all countries, a thing that caused a gap in the coverage level on the international area.
This is the fourth batch of vaccines received by the Ministry from China.
