Xi Jinping Pledges Additional 1 Billion Vaccine Doses to Africa
(Bloomberg) — Chinese President Xi Jinping pledged to supply 1 billion more doses of vaccines to African countries as the world’s poorest continent grapples with the emergence of a new and potentially more transmissible Covid-19 variant.
Xi said 600 million doses will be donated while the rest will be jointly produced by Chinese enterprises and African countries, without providing details. He spoke Monday via video at the eighth triennial Forum on China-Africa Cooperation in the Senegalese city of Diamniadio.
