China, Egypt supplying nations with Egyptian-made vaccines
With Beijing's support, Egypt became the first African country to produce COVID-19 vaccines domestically. Sinovac is expected to help Egypt's vaccination arm, VACSERA, take the first step in producing the raw biomaterials for the COVID-19 vaccine domestically. Egypt says it's on a track to produce 1 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines annually. With China's support, the North African nation plans to inoculate 70 percent of its population by mid 2022.
