Islamabad: The Pakistan government led by Prime Minister Imran Khan has given a big boost to the coronavirus pandemic and the Covid-19 virus is set to spread at a rapid rate in the impoverished country.
A big decision regarding the coronavirus vaccine by the Pakistan government led by Prime Minister Imran Khan is the reason behind this boost to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Imran Khan has decided that the government of Pakistan will not buy the coronavirus vaccine this year. The Imran Khan government will currently rely on herd immunity and the free coronavirus vaccine from other countries to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to Pakistan paper 'The Dawn', National Health Services Secretary Aamir Ashraf Khwaja has given this information.
According to the National Institute of Health Executive Director Major General Aamir Ikram, a dose of the Chinese-made coronavirus vaccine costs $13. He also said that Pakistan is dependent on international donors and fellow countries like China for the Covid-19 vaccine.
National Health Services Secretary said that China's pharmaceutical company Sinopharm has promised to give 1 million doses of Corona vaccine to Pakistan. Out of these 5 lakh doses have been given to Pakistan. Out of the doses received so far, Pakistan has given 2 lakh 75 thousand doses to the health professionals under the supervision of Corona patients.
He also said that Pakistan aims to give vaccines to 7 crore people by the end of this year.
Pakistan can also receive one crore six million free doses of the Indian-made Oxford-Estrogena Corona vaccine through the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization (Gavi), which will allow 20 percent of Pakistan's population to be vaccinated.
A Chinese company is also testing the third phase of its Covid-19 vaccine in Pakistan. It is clear that Pakistan is dependent on getting the coronavirus vaccine from the international community, especially China.
