China pledged to donate more vaccine of COVID-19 to Philippines

The Chinese Embassy in Manila committed on Thursday to contribute more coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccinations to the Philippines and to maintain a consistent supply.

"As the Philippines is facing an increase in demand of vaccines, we will donate more and substantively increase the supply of vaccines to the Philippines," Chinese Ambassador Huang Xilian said in a speech.

Huang noted that China was the first country to give test kits, personal protective equipment, immunizations, and send a medical expert team to the country.

"China has been standing in solidarity with the Philippines in fighting the pandemic," he said.

"China and the Philippines are close neighbors that cannot be separated and moved away. As close neighbors, our good neighborliness and mutually beneficial cooperation is a blessing for our two peoples and also for the region and beyond.” He added.

On Feb. 28, President Rodrigo Duterte witnessed the turnover ceremony of the first 600,000 doses of the 1 million Sinovac vaccines donated by China to the Philippines at the Villamor Airbase in Pasay City.
