A batch of 500,000 vaccines (500,000) donated by China arrived in Ecuador on October 30 to reinforce the latter’s National Vaccination Plan. The CoronaVac vaccine shipment arrived at Quito’s “Mariscal Sucre” airport. 

The donation was received by the Minister of Health, Ximena Garz贸n; the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Human Mobility (deputy), C茅sar Monta帽o; and the Chinese Ambassador to Ecuador, Chen Guoyou, among other authorities. The health minister mentioned that this donation is added to another 200,000 doses of Sinovac vaccines that the Chinese government donated to Ecuador last May, totaling 700,000 doses donated so far to advance the Ecuadorian immunization campaign.
