According to the Chinese Foreign Ministry, China has provided more vaccine doses than any other country globally, and most vaccines from developing countries have been sourced from China.
Preparations for immunization against the virus began two years ago, and in recent days, two books have come to light on these efforts to supply the world with the vaccine. Brendan Borrell’s The First Shots and Gregory Zuckerman’s A Shot to Save the World.
These books provide detailed information on vaccine development and the attitudes and thinking behind it.
According to the book, two kinds of attitudes emerged in the world, one of protectionism and nationalism and making vaccines a public product and fair distribution of vaccines.
On the one hand, China did its best to ensure the supply of vaccines around the world, and on the other hand, other powerful countries, including the United States, have shown protectionism towards vaccines.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin told a news briefing on Friday that his country has supplied more than 1.7 billion doses of the vaccine to more than 110 countries and international organizations and that vaccines have been distributed throughout the year. I will try to provide 2 billion doses.
China also donated more than 70 million doses of the vaccine to Kovacs and contributed 100 million US dollars.
