In statements to the press, the Chinese Ambassador to Nicaragua, Chen Xi, said that this is China’s sign of friendship with the Nicaraguan government and people.
He also valued the initiative of the Sandinista Executive to carry out another vaccination campaign against SARS-CoV-2, and assured that this donation will contribute to protect the life and health of the people.
Laureano Ortega, Nicaragua’s presidential advisor for the promotion of investment, trade and international cooperation, thanked the Asian nation for its donation, which completes three million vaccines.
The Health Minister, Martha Reyes, pointed out that 95 percent of the population here is protected with at least one dose and 90 percent have the complete vaccination program.
In this sense, the head of the health portfolio explained that these figures place the country in the first place of Central American nations with a complete scheme and fifth in the Americas region with this indicator.
