China Has Given Sinopharm Vaccine to Pakistan’s Armed Forces

February 8, 2021

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — Pakistan’s military says the People’s Liberation Army in neighboring China has given a Chinese-made COVID-19 vaccine to Pakistan's armed forces.

However, the army will contribute all of the donated vaccine to health workers, saying they are the real heroes because they have been “fighting against the pandemic and saving precious lives,” it said.

It praised the People’s Liberation Army and the Chinese government for donating the vaccine, which it did not identify.

About a week ago, Beijing donated 500,000 doses of China's Sinopharm vaccine to Pakistani authorities, who are using it to vaccinate front-line health workers.

Pakistan has reported 12,026 deaths among 555,511 cases of the coronavirus.
