ISLAMABAD – Pakistan International Airlines' special flight PK 6853 airlifted another batch of two million doses of Chinese Covid vaccine Sinovac from Beijing, Radio Pakistan reported Sunday.

Reports suggest that Pakistan has so far received over 13 million doses of Chinese Covid-19 vaccines other than the COVAX programme as the 'all-weather friend' China pledged to continue the uninterrupted supply of vaccine to help south asian country defeat the ongoing wave of a novel virus.

Earlier today, Pakistan has successfully manufactured a COVID vaccine locally at the National Institute of Health (NIH) Islamabad. At least 124,000 doses of single-dose CanSino vaccine were manufactured at the NIH and would be available for use from the next week.
