Moldova to Receive Nearly 100,000 COVID-19 Vaccines by the End of March

CHISINAU, Moldova — Moldova’s President Maia Sandu says the country will receive nearly 100,000 vaccines by the end of March.

He expects 46,350 will be delivered via the COVAX initiative and 50,000 doses will be donated by neighboring Romania.

The former Soviet republic, like many countries in Europe, is experiencing a third wave of the coronavirus. This week, Moldova recorded all-time highs in cases.

Moldova, a country of 3.5 million, has recorded more than 210,000 cases and 4,472 confirmed deaths. Some 18,593 vaccines have been administered, according to officials.
