Bangladesh will receive the second shipment of Chinese vaccine by June 13
According to the wall of the Chinese embassy in Bangladesh, the Chinese government is preparing to give 6 lakh doses of the vaccine by June 13.
However, the second batch of vaccines from China is expected to reach Dhaka by June 13. Hawlang Yan, deputy commissioner of the Chinese embassy in Dhaka, made the announcement in a post on his Facebook page on Saturday morning.
In that post, he said, “All I can say is that we are sincerely hopeful that our Bangladeshi brothers and sisters will get the most needed vaccines at the right time.” On May 21, China announced the gift of six lakh anti-corona vaccines to Bangladesh. Earlier, in another announcement, China said it would provide five lakh vaccines. The vaccine for the previous five lakh gifts arrived in the country on 12 May. If these six lakh vaccines arrive, the 11 lakh gift vaccines announced by the Chinese government will arrive in Bangladesh.
China is keeping a close eye on the latest status of the epidemic in Bangladesh, the embassy official said, adding that “China is concerned about the urgent need to vaccinate Bangladeshi friends at a crucial time in Bangladesh’s fight against the epidemic.” Not getting the vaccine bought from the serum, Bangladesh contacted to buy the vaccine from China and Russia. On May 26, the Cabinet Committee on Procurement approved a proposal to buy 1.5 crore vaccines from China.
