Turkey has donated a new batch of CoronaVac vaccine to the Republic of Moldova
Turkey has donated a batch of 70,000 doses of CoronaVac anti-COVID vaccine to the Republic of Moldova. Some of the vaccines will be distributed to the Transnistrian region, where according to the latest data, the lowest level of immunization is registered. Currently, the vaccination rate in the Republic of Moldova is about 27 percent, reports Moldova 1.
The Minister of Health, Ala Nemerenco, mentioned that this donation has an important significance, as a good part of those who want to be vaccinated opt for this serum. "We have from a large number of people, the specific demand for this vaccine. Thus, we considered it very important that when we try to convince someone to get vaccinated, to give priority to the wishes of the citizens."
At the same time, the vaccine will be distributed in the localities on the left bank of the Dniester, in the autonomy of Gagauzia, but also in those districts where the CoronaVac vaccine lots have already been consumed.
"We have a very good collaboration with the Transnistrian region in this area and the fact that part of this lot is a very good sign for all of us and we hope to have this collaboration in the future," said Deputy Prime Minister for Reintegration Vladislav Kulminski.
"This donation is a sign of our continued support for the Republic of Moldova. Also on this occasion, I would like to express my condolences to the families who lost their loved ones in the fight against the pandemic,” said Turkish Ambassador to Moldova Halil Gurol Sokmensuer.
Earlier, the Government of Turkey offered the Republic of Moldova another humanitarian batch, consisting of medical protection equipment. Thus, the total value of donations offered by Ankara reached 4 million lei.
