China to Offer BioNTech Covid Shot to Expatriates, Scholz Says

(Bloomberg) — China will make BioNTech SE’s Covid-19 vaccine available to foreigners living in the country, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said, a potential first step toward offering the shot more widely across the mainland.

The German chancellor said he spoke with Chinese leaders about general approval of the shot from BioNTech, whose China partner is Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical Group Co.
