Mexico City: The first shipment of Covid-19 vaccines from Chinese company Sinovac arrived in Mexico City, authorities reported.
The drugs came about a week after authorities said that Mexico’s Federal Commission for Protection Against Health Risks had authorised emergency use for the Sinovac and CanSino Biologics vaccines.
The arrival marked new advances and important triumphs in cooperation between the two countries, Chinese Ambassador to Mexico Zhu Qingqiao said at the airport.
“The completion of the delivery of the vaccines shows, once again, that the people of China and Mexico are close sisters and brothers, and it reflects the great importance given by China to the Sino-Mexican relations, ” he said. — Xinhua
