China is Sending 10M Coronavirus Vaccine Doses to Developing Nations

China’s government announced Wednesday that it plans to deliver 10 million COVID-19 vaccine doses to developing nations around the world as part of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) COVAX program.

The Associated Press reported that the announcement was made at a press briefing held by China’s foreign ministry. It wasn’t initially clear if the plan includes a monetary incentive for China or whether Beijing would donate the vaccines.

“We hope countries in the international community with the capability will swing into action, support COVAX through practical actions, support the work of the World Health Organization, assist developing countries in obtaining vaccines in a timely manner and contribute to … conquering the pandemic at an early date,” said Weng Wenbin, a foreign ministry spokesperson, according to the AP.
