CNN stated that China has launched an "unparalleled vaccination program" and that 1 billion doses of vaccination is an "astounding milestone."
Earlier, CNN had reported that the scale and speed of China’s vaccination activities were “astonishing”, which was “unmatched by any other country” in the world. “From 100 million doses to more than 200 million doses, it took 25 days, and from 200 million doses. It took 16 days to reach 300 million doses, and it took 6 days to increase from 800 million doses to 900 million doses."
The British Broadcasting Corporation also said on the 20th that the pace of China's new crown vaccination is rapidly accelerating. The National Health Commission of China stated that it only takes 5 days to go from 900 million doses to 1 billion doses.

The New York Times pointed out that China's new crown vaccination campaign is "in full swing."
According to reports, China has successfully curbed the spread of the new crown epidemic through high technology and rapid mobilization, and is currently deploying vaccination in the same powerful way.
Singapore's "Straits Times" observed that in recent months, the Chinese government has stepped up its efforts to promote vaccination. Some communities in Shenzhen have put up a banner of "Miao Miao Miao Miao Miao Miao Miao Miao Miao Miao" to encourage residents to vaccinate.
The BBC reported that after the recent sporadic community infections in Guangzhou, more residents decided to vaccinate.
Some other regions have also introduced a series of moderate incentive measures to encourage residents to be vaccinated.
Foreign media said that the inoculation of more than 1 billion doses of vaccine is an "important step" in China's vaccination plan.

Not only did China press the "fast forward button" for domestic vaccination, many foreign media such as the BBC and the British "Guardian" also paid attention to the "going overseas" of Chinese vaccines.
The BBC stated that China's vaccines have been distributed or donated to many countries in the world, including the Philippines, Chile, Brazil, and Indonesia.
China National Medicines and Kexing vaccine have been included in the WHO emergency use list, fully proving their safety and effectiveness.
The Wall Street Journal also wrote a few days ago that with millions of doses of Chinese vaccines being shipped to various parts of Asia, Chinese vaccines are "solving urgent needs" for developing countries in Asia.
