ISLAMABAD, March 17 (Xinhua) — Pakistan on Wednesday received the
second batch of COVID-19 vaccines donated by the Chinese government with
a handover ceremony held at the Noor Khan Air Base near Pakistan’s
capital Islamabad.

Speaking on the occasion, Special Assistant to the Pakistani Prime
Minister on Health Faisal Sultan thanked the Chinese government for once
again providing the COVID-19 vaccine aid to Pakistan.

The newly-arrived Sinopharm vaccine doses are crucial to the further
implementation of Pakistan’s vaccination drive, he said, adding the
efficacy and safety of the Sinopharm vaccine are very good.

The assistance from China shows the strong friendship between the two countries, he said.

Sultan said that Pakistan is currently facing a third wave of
COVID-19, and he urged the public to continue following anti-pandemic
measures including wearing a mask and keeping social distancing.

Xie Guoxiang, minister counsellor at the Chinese Embassy in Pakistan,
said during the handover ceremony that the first batch of the COVID-19
vaccine aid provided by the Chinese government, which arrived in
Pakistan on Feb. 1, helped kick off Pakistan’s nationwide vaccination
campaign, highlighting the friendship between the two countries.

Pakistan officially launched its National COVID Immunization Program
across the country shortly after receiving the Chinese
government-donated Sinopharm vaccines, with the frontline healthcare
workers given the priority for inoculation.

On March 10, Pakistan began vaccinating its people aged 60 years and
over against COVID-19 in the second phase of the nationwide vaccination
drive. Enditem
