China pledges 20 million Covid vaccinations to Cambodia

US, Hungary and ASEAN shore up the Southeast Asian nation's vaccine stocks.

China has announced it will donate 20 million Covid-19 vaccinations to Cambodia as Prime Minister Hun Sen urged a joint manufacturing venture to speed up development for a homegrown inoculation against the disease.

He said the incoming donation from the Chinese government would ensure that Cambodia had enough vaccines to inoculate its entire population of about 16.5 million people well into the future.

“Vaccine production must also continue to be promoted,” he said. “We must put efforts to work with the Chinese stakeholders to establish a homegrown Covid-19 vaccine factory in Cambodia.”
