Sinopharm says it has capacity to provide over 1 billion COVID-19 vaccine doses in 2021

By

Beijing: China National Pharmaceutical Group, which develops Sinopharm’s vaccine, said it can provide 1 billion COVID-19 vaccines to the world outside China in the second half of this year.

Liu said at a panel meeting of the Boao Forum for Asia Global Health Forum that this supply capacity assumes that China’s vaccine needs are met.

“Our annual production capacity exceeds 5 billion doses,” firm’s chairman Liu Jingzhen said, “This is our own capacity.”

He declined to say how many injections the country-backed drugmaker has agreed to provide to the global COVAX program to share doses, mainly with poor countries.
