ECNS App DownloadSpecial: Battle Against Novel CoronavirusThe Nepali government has decided to administer the COVID-19 vaccine donated by China on Wednesday amid a resurgence of novel coronavirus cases in the country, an official from the Ministry of Health and Population said.
On March 29, a batch of Chinese COVID-19 vaccines developed by Sinopharm was delivered to Nepal.
“The Chinese vaccine will be inoculated among people starting from Wednesday,” Jageshwor Gautam, spokesperson for the health ministry, told a press conference.
“Those involved in essential services, students studying in China under the Chinese government scholarship but are currently stuck in Nepal due to pandemic, Nepali students preparing to leave for China for higher studies and people involved in cross-border trade between Nepal and China will be inoculated with the Chinese vaccine.”
According to the ministry, essential workers include the people who are working in postal and telephone services, water supply and distribution, hotels and restaurant, public transportation services, electricity supply, storage and transportation of consumer goods, sales and distribution of medicines and the health workers who had missed out in the first phase of the vaccination drive that began on January 27.
Gautam said the Chinese vaccines would be administered at designated hospitals in Kathmandu Valley.
The Nepali government is using Chinese vaccines at a time when the number of COVID-19 cases has started to rise in the country, which reported 260 cases on Tuesday. In early March, the cases had gone down below 50 per day.
Nepal has so far inoculated over 1.7 million people in two phases, according to the Ministry of Health and Population.
On February 17, the Nepali Department of Drug Administration approved the vaccine developed by Chinas Beijing Institute of Biological Products Co. Ltd. under Sinopharm for emergency use.Related newsNepal to use Chinese vaccine among people aged 40-59 years2021-04-01China-donated COVID-19 vaccines arrive in Nepal2021-03-29Nepal approves Sinopharms COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use2021-02-18MorePhotoPanda cub in Japan enjoys sunbath‘Dying town’ in Italy shrinks to one third of original sizeEagle carries wild pig into the airPoverty Alleviation: Chinas Experience and ContributionYulan magnolia flowers bloom on top of Huangshan MountainBlooming hydrangeas flowers attract visitors to NanjingNTU Singapore scientists develop plant communication deviceXiamen University holds gala evening to mark 100 yearsNew crack with lava appears at Icelandic Volcano130-ton selfie giant panda debuts in SW China13 Tibetan monks receive Buddhisms highest degreeNASA Ingenuity Mars Helicopter ready for first flightNewly-come bear cub makes friends with chimpanzee at Turkey’s zooEgypt to transport 22 mummies to new homeGiant panda Ai Bao enjoys afternoon leisure time in S KoreaScenery of Xiling Gorge amid the misty rainAmerican Museum of Natural History sees increasing number of visitorsBerlin to impose curfew from Easter amid rising COVID-19 concernsSunset scenery of Qinghai Lake picturesqueCOVID-19 vaccination underway in YunnanXiongan New Area under large-scale constructionHunan stages a Guochao show to promote traditional cultureJapanese stunt pilot draws a smile over TokyoBlue tears light up waters in XiamenThe Three Kingdoms exhibition held in ChengduSniffer dog trained to detect COVID-19 in human sweatGuangji Bridge in Guangdong: Free to connect and disconnectCherry blossom season arrives in Washington D.C.Seals lie in a lazy pose and wave helloVoice recorder recovered from crashed Indonesia planeVirgin Galactic unveils new spaceship VSS ImagineLogo of Milan-Cortina 2026 Olympics and Paralympics unveiledSpaceX Starship SN11 rocket fails to land safely after test launchExhibition of Lhasas intangible cultural heritage opens at Tibet Yak MuseumWall of hearts painted as a memorial to COVID-19 deathsChina successfully launches Gaofen-12 02 satelliteMost popular in 24h$(function () {$.ajaxSetup({cache: true});var tStr = new Date().getUTCHours()+_+ new Date().getUTCMinutes();$.ajax({type: “get”,dataType: “json”,url: “/part/6/ecns_rank24h.json?t=”+ tStr,success: function (status) {var str = “”;$.each(status,function(index,obj){obj.title = obj.title.replace(/'/g, ');str +=+obj[“title”]+;});$(“#rank24″).html(str);},error:function(status){}});});MoreTop newsPanda cub in Japan enjoys sunbath Dying town in Italy shrinks to one third of original size Eagle carries wild pig into the air Experts lay bare inequality, disorganization of U.S. health care China to recruit over 84,000 college graduates as rural teachers this yearMoreVideoSW Chinas Ruili starts second round of nucleic acid testingFemale police dog trainer and her comrade-in-armsLINEMedia partners:Peoples Daily Online|Xinhuanet|China.org.cn|ChinaDaily.com.cn|CGTN|Globaltimes.cn|Chinaplus.cri.cn|Shine.cn|JSCHINA|
