A consignment of 600,000 Chinese vaccines has been delivered to the Beijing international airport to be airlifted to Sri Lanka on Wednesday as a gift from the people of China, an official said.

The stock of vaccines will be flown to Sri Lanka by Sri Lankan Airlines on Wednesday morning. A spokesman for the Chinese embassy said the vaccines were developed by China National Pharmaceutical Group (Sinopharm).

The Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccines have hit a combined 100 million doses of supply around the world last Friday. Over 80 million doses have already been administered.

There are plans to use a part of the consignment to vaccinate Chinese nationals living in Sri Lanka. (KELUM BANDARA)

    Hands off Sri Lanka citizens on this unapproved vaccine. Give it to the Buds and the Chinese.

    It is best to dump this garbage in the deep sea during the flight.
