Egypt on Saturday received a second shipment of coronavirus vaccine donated by China, officials said, as the Arab country tries to speed up its vaccination campaign. The 300,000-dose shipment of the vaccine manufactured by China’s state-owned pharmaceutical giant Sinopharm arrived at Cairo’s international airport early Saturday, according to the Health Ministry.

Ministry spokesman Khaled Megahed said in a statement that the shipment was a gift from China meant to bolster cooperation between the two nations in the fight against the virus. Egypt is among dozens of nations depending on China to help rescue them from the COVID-19 pandemic, part of Beijing’s vaccine diplomacy campaign that has been a surprising success.
