Xinhua News Agency, Beijing, July 2 (Reporter Ma Zhuoyan) Foreign Ministry spokesperson Wang Wenbin said on the 2nd that since the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia, China has firmly upheld the “first attribute” of vaccines as a global public product. Under stressful circumstances, it has provided more than 480 million doses of vaccines to the international community as much as possible, making it the country that provides the most vaccines to the world.

Wang Wenbin said at a regular press conference that day that China's vaccine footprint covers five continents around the world. Up to now, China has provided vaccines to nearly 100 countries. China has announced that it will provide the first batch of 10 million doses of vaccine to the New Coronary Pneumonia Vaccine Implementation Plan (COVAX).

He said that the Chinese vaccine was the first batch of vaccines obtained by many developing countries, and these countries vividly referred to the Chinese vaccine as "timely rain." President Obiang of Equatorial Guinea said that Chinese vaccines bring hope to the local anxious battlefield against the epidemic. President Mnangagwa of Zimbabwe said that the vaccine donated by China is like the light at the end of the tunnel. Chilean President Piñera stated that China's vaccines are safe and effective. Through vaccination, we are working hard to reduce the infection rate, hospitalizations and deaths of new coronary pneumonia in Chile. Antigua and Barbuda Prime Minister Brown and other politicians said that the Chinese vaccine has proven its effectiveness and safety, and will make positive contributions to the early realization of herd immunity in Antigua and Barbuda.

Wang Wenbin said that China has also carried out joint R&D and cooperative production with many developing countries, and supported relevant companies in cooperating with foreign parties to carry out phase III clinical trials.

He said that Chinese vaccines have gained a good reputation in the international community, and their safety and effectiveness have been widely recognized. At present, more than 100 countries have approved the use of Chinese vaccines. WHO has included the vaccines of Sinopharm Group and Kexing Company into the emergency use list. More than 30 foreign leaders took the lead in vaccinating China.

"China will continue to contribute to the realization of the availability and affordability of vaccines in developing countries within its capacity." Wang Wenbin said, "We also hope that all countries in the world with conditions can act as soon as possible and fulfill their promises as soon as possible. To promote the equitable distribution and use of vaccines in the world, and promote global anti-epidemic cooperation to make due contributions."
