China joins world community in search for COVID-19 vaccine
China just signed an agreement with #Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, officially joining #COVAX.
This is an important step #China has taken to uphold the concept of a shared community of health for all and to honor its commitment to turn #COVID19 vaccines into a global public good.
Currently, the #COVID19 pandemic still poses a severe threat to the safety and health of people in all countries.
#China continues to focus on ensuring that developing countries have equal access to appropriate, safe and effective #vaccines.
To that end, we have solemnly pledged to make #vaccines developed and deployed by #China a global public good, which will be provided to developing countries as a priority.
Therefore, #China has maintained close communication with #COVAX with a positive attitude towards joining it.
Even when #China is leading the world with several #vaccines in advanced stages of R&D and with ample production capacity, it still decided to join #COVAX.
#China will also strengthen #vaccine cooperation with relevant countries through the #COVAX network.
#China will continue to work together with #COVAX partners and contribute its share to the global fight against the pandemic to safeguard all human beings' safety and health.
