Vaccine city and human rights lead the foreign press

Egypt’s vaccine ambitions are in the foreign press: Egypt’s ambitious plans to produce as many as 1 bn vaccine doses annually at its new Vacsera facility, as well as a partnership with a European vaccine-maker is getting ink in Reuters. Also making news: This week’s release of three public figures who had spent over a year in pre-trial detention is still getting attention from the Washington Post.

Also making headlines:
