This is the first batch of vaccines China exported to Senegal and the first batch of vaccines China exported to countries in sub-Saharan Africa.

  The spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated on February 8 that China has and is exporting vaccines to 22 countries. At the same time, China has provided vaccine assistance to 53 developing countries.

On the 15th local time, China’s aid to Zimbabwe was transported from Beijing to Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe.

This is the first batch of new crown vaccines obtained by this poorest country in the world in southern Africa.

Vice President and Minister of Health Chiwenga of Zimbabwe led senior government officials to greet him at the airport.

President Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe held a ceremony at the Presidential Palace in the afternoon to welcome Chinese vaccines.

Mnangagwa said that China’s inclusion of Zimbabwe in the first batch of vaccine aid countries shows that the two countries are good friends and partners.

Even when China itself needs a vaccine, it still does not forget to provide vaccine assistance to developing countries such as Zimbabwe, which demonstrates China's commendable role in the global fight against the epidemic.

He said that these vaccines bring hope to the Zimbabwe government and people who are fighting the epidemic, just like "the light at the end of the tunnel."

The Zimbabwe government and people are deeply grateful for this act of saving lives.

  Many foreign leaders have "liked" Chinese vaccines and vaccinated them in person.

The 78-year-old President of Equatorial Guinea, Obiang, received the new crown vaccine donated by China in the capital of Malabo on the 15th and said that China is not only the best friend of Equatorial Guinea, but also the best friend of Africa.

The vaccine provided by China has saved the lives of African people. "I highly appreciate China's charity."

In addition to Equatorial President Obiang, there are also Turkish President Erdogan, Seychelles President Ram Karawang, Jordanian Prime Minister Al-Khasuna, Indonesian President Joko, Crown Prince and Prime Minister Salman of Bahrain, Peruvian President Sagasti, Chilean President Pinera.

The Chinese Vaccine is another strong proof of the friendship and close cooperation between Cambodia and China and their people.

  Another Chinese "iron buddy" Pakistan approved on February 15 the new crown vaccine jointly developed by the Institute of Microbiology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Zhifei Biological Company to start a phase III clinical trial in many hospitals in Pakistan. There will be 10,000 Pakistani volunteers participating in the trial. .

Pakistan has also become the first country in the world to accept the third vaccine developed by China.

  Why do leaders of many countries "like"

  What made the leaders of these developing countries give the Chinese vaccine "the highest courtesy", they personally picked up the plane, received the Chinese vaccine and publicly "liked" it?

In addition to China's sincere friendship with these countries, the most important thing is the effectiveness and safety of Chinese vaccines. In addition, China is also recognized as the country that can guarantee the largest scale of production and export of vaccines.

Chilean President Piñera said after receiving the Chinese vaccine on the 12th: "I want to tell all my compatriots that this is a safe and effective vaccine."

  Serbian President Vucic used his mother's personal experience in an interview with Euronews on February 10 to prove the safety and effectiveness of the Chinese vaccine.

Wu Qiqi said that his mother was infected with the new coronary pneumonia not long ago. As the old man has advanced age and also suffers from a variety of underlying diseases, on the advice of doctors, Wu Qiqi chose to vaccinate his mother in China.

Nine days later, antibodies appeared in his mother's body miraculously, turning the danger into peace.

Vucic said gratefully that the Chinese vaccine saved the mother's life and that "the Eastern vaccine is safer and more effective than the Western vaccine."

  The new crown vaccine developed by many countries, including the United States, the United Kingdom, China, and Russia, has been on the market.

Up to now, tens of millions of people have been vaccinated at home and abroad after Chinese vaccines are on the market, but there have been almost no reports of serious adverse reactions reported by Chinese and foreign media.

  Regarding the effectiveness of domestic vaccines, Yang Xiaoming, chairman of Sinopharm China Biotech and chief scientist of the national "863" vaccine project, said in an interview with domestic media during the Spring Festival this year that he himself was the first batch of vaccines on March 23 last year. One of the four volunteers, more than 9 months passed, the antibody titer in his body was still high when he was tested again a few days ago.

In order to ensure safety, China's Sinopharm Vaccine Phase III trial has created a number of global firsts: 60,000 people were inoculated in the trial, the number of people enrolled in the group was the world's first; the volunteers participating in the trial covered 125 countries, covering the population and their countries of origin. Number one in the world.

  At the same time, there are increasing problems surrounding vaccines in Europe and the United States.

Thirty-three elderly people in Norwegian nursing homes died after being vaccinated by Pfizer; California urgently stopped 330,000 doses of Modena vaccine on the grounds that there were serious adverse reactions exceeding normal proportions.

According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of February 7, 1,170 people in the United States have died after being vaccinated with the new crown vaccine.

Regarding the above incidents, although the US CDC or European and American vaccine companies have claimed that none of the accidents have been "proven to be caused by vaccines," their safety cannot but cause people to worry.

  The vaccination rate in Asia, Africa and Latin America is much lower than in the United States and Europe

  US President Biden said in an interview with CNN on the 16th that all Americans will be vaccinated against the new crown by the end of July this year.

The White House announced on the same day that it would increase the number of new crown vaccines provided to states to 13.5 million doses per week, an increase of 57% from before Biden took office.

According to CDC statistics, the total number of new crown vaccines in the United States has exceeded 55 million doses.

  The New York Times said on the 17th that as of that day, about 180 million doses of vaccines had been vaccinated globally.

Among them, the highest rates of vaccination are in North America and Europe. North America averages 9.7 doses per 100 people, Europe 5.6 doses, Latin America 2 doses, Asia 1.5 doses, and Africa averages less than 0.1 doses per 100 people.

  "Developing countries from North Africa to South America have begun to favor Chinese vaccines."

The US "Washington Post" pointed out that a major problem facing the current world with the epidemic is that the number of vaccines ordered by rich countries is two or three times that of its population, while those poor developing countries cannot get vaccine contracts from Western companies.

When these developing countries were pushed out of the vaccine supply circle by the West, Chinese vaccines provided them with options to overcome the epidemic.

For example, Peru will be able to vaccinate about half of its population in June after ordering vaccines from China.

  On the 16th, the first batch of COVID-19 vaccines exported from China to Hungary arrived in Budapest, the capital of Hungary. This is also the first EU country to import Chinese vaccines.

"The Wall Street Journal" stated that due to problems in the production of western vaccine companies, which hindered the EU from obtaining vaccines, some small European governments turned to China to purchase vaccines.

Leaders of Germany, France, Austria and other countries are now considering vaccines developed by China and Russia.

Senior officials in some European countries said that China can initially deliver millions of vaccines within a few days of signing the contract, which is in contrast to Western companies.

The report also said that the United States and Europe are first concerned about the issue of vaccination of their own populations. Unlike China, it has long announced that it will widely share its vaccines.
