Made-in-Egypt™ Sinovac shots coming to clinics in August

Expect the first batch of Egypt-made Sinovac shots to be rolled into clinics nationwide as early as August, pending final-stage testing on the locally produced doses before their official distribution, Masaa DMC’s Ramy Radwan said (watch, runtime: 2:10) last night, citing a statement by state-owned Vacsera. Health Minister Hala Zayed said earlier this week that Vacsera will produce the first batch of the Chinese vaccine on 15 June, and send them to be analysed before being dispatched to clinics.

The Health Ministry reported 773 new covid-19 infections yesterday, down from 782 the day before. Egypt has now disclosed a total of 269,527 confirmed cases of covid-19. The ministry also reported 38 new deaths, bringing the country’s total death toll to 15,437.
