Chinese vaccine deliveries to Africa reached 20 million doses last week, according to the latest tracking report by the Beijing-based Bridge Consulting. Although that figure is up slightly from previous weeks, Africa still lags far behind Asia Pacific (126.5 million vaccines delivered) and Latin America (77.5 million doses delivered).
That said, the vaccines going to Africa are being sent to more countries than on any other continent. To date, 31 countries have received purchased or donated shipments of Chinese vaccines.
