Another 2 m doses of Sinopharm here today

Another 2 million Chinese-made Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine doses will arrive in Sri Lanka this morning (22), Prof. Channa Jayasumana, Minister of State for Pharmaceuticals Supply and Regulation said.

He said two SriLankan Airlines planes will arrive in Sri Lanka at 5.10 am and at 5.40 am with the vaccines. The Minister also said that the State Pharmaceutical Corporation (SPC) has obtained the stocks after making relevant payments.

Research conducted by the Department of Molecular Sciences at the University of Sri Jayewardenepura has reported that the Chinese-made Sinopharm vaccine is highly responsive not only to the Indian Delta variant but also to other variants of the COVID-19.
