10 million doses – China officially announced on the 3rd that the vaccine supply to the “COVID-19 Vaccine Implementation Plan” is mainly used for urgent needs in developing countries, which has been well received by many countries.
Meanwhile, Serbian President Vučić said, “Our citizens are convinced of the Chinese vaccine, as well as the Chinese government and Chinese experts.”
At present, the first batch of vaccine assistance provided by the Chinese government has arrived in Pakistan. At the same time, vaccine assistance is being provided to 13 developing countries, and the next step will be to 38 other developing countries in need.
In addition, China supports domestic enterprises to carry out joint research and development and cooperative production of vaccines with foreign partners, and supports relevant enterprises to export vaccines to countries that urgently need to obtain vaccines, recognize Chinese vaccines, and have authorized the emergency use of Chinese vaccines in their own countries.
If you say what you say, you must do it. The vaccines shipped overseas one after another carry China’s sincerity as a global partner.
This point is being accepted by more and more countries.
According to incomplete statistics, more than 40 countries have so far raised the demand for imported Chinese vaccines.
Leaders of Indonesia, Turkey, Seychelles, Jordan and other countries have all taken the lead in vaccination against China.
According to the website of Germany’s Economic Week, people in the core area of the European Union have also been publicly considering the approval of a Chinese-Russian vaccine. German Chancellor Merkel admitted in an interview a few days ago that Serbia has been vaccinated faster than that of EU countries because of the use of Chinese vaccines.
On the one hand, the safety and effectiveness of Chinese vaccines have been tested, and fair and reasonable prices can significantly reduce the economic burden of less developed countries.
In addition, compared with the storage conditions of the coronavirus vaccine produced by some developed countries, the storage environment of Chinese vaccines only need 2°C to 8°C, which obviously greatly improves the possibility of developing countries obtaining vaccines.
More importantly, at a time when some Western countries are engaged in “vaccine nationalism”, Chinese vaccines are constantly injecting “cleaning up” into global solidarity and anti-Pandemic.
Hoarding, jumping the queue, scrambling, and pushing up prices – some developed countries’ “too ugly food appearance” has led the WHO to warn that “the world is on the verge of disastrophic moral decay”.
According to the data, high-income countries have purchased more than half of the global coronavirus vaccines, and some developed countries have purchased vaccines for their nationals five vaccinations.
In contrast, an analysis of the People’s Vaccine Alliance, which was established by several international organizations, found last December that 30 low-income and 37 low- and middle-income countries around the world can only obtain vaccines through the COVID-19 Vaccine Implementation Plan, and 90% of the population of these countries has no hope of vaccination this year. .
A cartoon recently published on the American Political Comics Network is very vivid: rich countries use trucks to pull away boxes of coronavirus vaccines, while children in a poor country can only watch.
UN Secretary-General Guterres said that no one can be alone in the current Pandemic, and he called on the international community to ensure that vaccines can be distributed fairly and accessible to all.
In this way, the deeper reason why China’s vaccine has been recognized by the world is that by looking at the vast number of developing countries, it provides positive energy for the world to fight against “vaccine nationalism”.
And equitable access to vaccines in developing countries is not only the key to the global eventual victory over the Pandemic, but also the key to global economic recovery. As Eric Nielsen, chief economist of the Italian United Credit Bank, said, “As long as the Pandemic threatens part of the world, nowhere will return to normal”.
Small vaccine, big responsibility.
In the face of the Pandemic that is still spreading around the world, China will continue to act, and expect countries in a position to do so to take positive action to support the work of the World Health Organization, help developing countries obtain vaccines fairly, and not let “egoism” become a stumbling block for mankind to defeat the Pandemic.
