Pakistan’s coronavirus vaccine.
Pakistan has claimed to produce a domestic vaccine of coronaviruses. It has been named PakVac. It was also launched during a ceremony on Tuesday. Dr Faisal Sultan gave information about this vaccine. Sultan is also the health advisor to Prime Minister Imran Khan. Earlier, Pakistan was procuring vaccines from China and Russia. However, Sultan has not given any information about the efficacy of this vaccine.
Sultan said- We have prepared our vaccine. In a few days, we will also start mass production of this.
It was necessary for the country to make a vaccine
Talking to the media on the occasion of the vaccine launch, Dr Faisal said – It was necessary for our country that we prepare our own vaccine. Now that it is ready, we will soon start its large scale production. I do not mind telling that our team had to face many difficulties in preparing this vaccine. During this, China stood firmly with us as our friend. The team from the National Institutes of Health also did a great job.
Work was very difficult
Sultan further said – preparing the vaccine from raw materials was a big challenge in itself. Today we are proud that our team has succeeded in preparing this vaccine despite all the difficulties. Today is a very important day for the country.
National Command and Operation Center Chief Asad Umar, who was present on the same occasion, said – The number of infected in this wave is much more than in the previous two waves. At present, about 60 percent of the patients are on oxygen support.
Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Nong Rong was also present on the occasion. He said- The production of this vaccine shows how strong our friendship with Pakistan is. Pakistan was the first country to accept the gift of China’s vaccine. Work on this vaccine started in April and has been supported by Sinovac China.
