China is set to donate a hundred million dollars ($100,000,000) to COVAX Facility to facilitate distribution of COVID-19 vaccines to developing countries.
This was disclosed in a message by the Chinese President, Xi Jinping to the first meeting of the International Forum on COVID-19 Vaccine Cooperation recently, proposing setting up an international forum on vaccine cooperation.
