According to Singapore’s Lianhe Zaobao, on January 13, Indonesia will begin to vaccinate the COVID-19 vaccine developed by China Kexing in 34 provinces across the country.

Since December last year, more than 10 countries around the world, including the UAE, Bahrain, Morocco, Pakistan, Turkey, Argentina, Egypt, Brazil, Thailand, Mexico, and Peru, have signed COVID-19vaccine order agreements with China.

Global public goods. Under the haze of the epidemic, the Chinese vaccine is like a ray of sunshine, injecting confidence and hope into the global fight against the epidemic.
“Starting an upsurge in ordering China’s COVID-19 vaccine”
“After filling in electronic forms for personal health and allergies as required, people took buses into a temporary vaccination center in a certain park. Some people wore two-layer medical surgical masks. TV pictures showed that people were in some hospitals and communities. There was a long queue outside the health center to read the informed consent and take the temperature before the vaccination. Gymnasiums and empty factories were also used as vaccination points.” This is a report in Singapore’s “Straits Times” describing people in Beijing on January 4 The scene of the COVID-19 vaccine.
On December 30, 2020, the China National Medical Products Administration approved the conditional listing of Sinopharm’s COVID-19 vaccine. This is China’s first n COVID-19 vaccine officially approved for marketing and vaccinated by key populations, which has attracted widespread attention from foreign media.
CNN stated that China’s approval of the vaccine and the start of vaccination will pave the way for the large-scale promotion of the vaccine in China and globally.
The US “Washington Post” published an article on January 4 that China has launched a nationwide COVID-19 vaccination campaign and will vaccinate 50 million front-line anti-epidemic personnel before the peak of the Spring Festival trip in February. The nine types of key populations that enjoy priority vaccination rights include medical and health personnel, transportation personnel, personnel who go abroad for work and study, and community workers.
Recently, many countries around the world have set off an upsurge of “queuing” to order and vaccinate China’s COVID-19 vaccine. According to Agence France-Presse, Egypt’s Minister of Health and Population, Hala Zayed, stated on January 2 that Egypt has officially approved the emergency use of China’s Sinopharm’s COVID-19 inactivated vaccine in Egypt. The first batch of vaccines from China was in place in December 2020, and the second batch will arrive in the second and third weeks of January this year. Egypt plans to order 40 million doses of vaccines from China. The two sides have signed the “Letter of Intent on Cooperation between China and Egypt on New coronavirus Vaccine” on December 31, 2020.

The Wall Street Journal reported that this is a major vote of confidence in the safety and effectiveness of China’s vaccines by the UAE government.
Local media in Mexico reported that on December 10, 2020, Mexico and China CanSino signed a COVID-19 vaccine pre-purchase agreement and decided to purchase 35 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine developed by the company.
“Scientifically certified for safety and effectiveness”
“China’s vaccines do not require ultra-low temperature storage, which brings hope to people living in remote areas.” Mexican President López said in one sentence the reason for his vote of confidence in China’s vaccines. He also said: “Cansino vaccine has been used in China for a long time and the effect is good.”
Safety and effectiveness are the primary reasons for China’s n COVID-19 vaccine circle. Since July 2020, a number of China’s COVID-19 vaccines have successively carried out Phase III clinical trials in overseas countries, and the efficacy of the drug is obvious to all around the world.
According to a report by Singapore’s “Straits Times” on January 3, Siti Nadia Tamiz, the spokesperson of the Indonesian Ministry of Health in charge of vaccines, said that the clinical trials of China Kexing’s vaccines in Turkey and Brazil have achieved “very good results.

Reuters reported that test data from Turkey showed that the effectiveness of China’s COVID-19 vaccine reached 91.25%.
According to the Egyptian Today, Egyptian Minister of Health and Population, Hala Zayed, said that the Phase III clinical trial of Sinopharm’s vaccine in Egypt is progressing smoothly, and its safety and effectiveness have been scientifically certified.
Easy storage and convenient transportation are the unique advantages of China’s COVID-19 vaccine.
Usama Abdul-Hayi, secretary general of the Egyptian Medical Association, said that the new nucleic acid vaccines developed in some countries must be stored at minus 70 degrees Celsius, and some vaccines must be used within one to two weeks after production. This means that the production, transportation and storage of vaccines are facing many practical difficulties, and some countries are still unable to deal with these problems. Therefore, the COVID-19 vaccine developed and produced in China is more suitable for use in Egypt, and it is recommended that Egyptian medical staff vaccinate it as soon as possible.
According to the website of Fortune magazine, Huang Yanzhong, senior researcher of global health at the US Council on Foreign Relations, said that restrictions on the transportation and distribution of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines will be a gap in the global supply of COVID-19 vaccines, and China’s COVID-19 vaccines may fill this gap. China’s vaccine candidates will be very attractive to low- and middle-income countries, especially those countries that cannot afford or cannot maintain cold chain delivery of vaccines.
According to the Wall Street Journal, when developed countries are purchasing vaccines from Western drugmakers with all their strength, other countries are pinning their hopes on China. The vaccines of Kexing Holdings can be stored in ordinary refrigerators, making it easier to transport and store the vaccines in underdeveloped areas.
