Pinaghahanda na ang China ang bansa sa pagtanggap ng bakuna kontra sa coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Ambassador to Beijing Chito Sta. Romana.
“It’s not a condition. It’s just a reminder that if you get the vaccine and you don’t have cold chain storage, then it’s useless,” giit nito.
“I think the health experts are very much aware of this, I just don’t know the condition of cold storage in the Philippines that’s why I want to reiterate this necessary condition for effective deployment and effective distribution of the vaccine,” dagdag ni Sta. Romana.
Samantala, siniguro naman ni Budget Secretary Wendel Avisado na naglaan ng pondo para sa paglalagyan ng mga bakuna.
“Surely, as the sun rises in the east, there will be funds for that because the President will never allow that we will run short of the requirements to make sure that we have the storage facilities for all of these vaccines,” ani Avisado.
Dagdag naman ni Sta. Romana na maaaring magkakaroon ng mass production ang China sa Nobyembre o Disyembre.
“And it will depend on our capability to receive the vaccines in terms of our facilities, in terms of distribution. So, the prospects are bright in terms of a breakthrough in vaccines,” aniya.
“As far as I know, in China there’s a possibility for one or two vaccines that will be approved here soon,” lahad pa nito.
Matatandaang ang Sinovac ng China ay isa sa mga magsasagawa ng clinical trials dito sa bansa.
