Egypt plans to manufacture COVID-19 vaccines

A laboratory technician prepares to work on the production of vials of China's Sinovac vaccine against COVID-19, produced by the Egyptian company VACSERA, in the capital Cairo, on Wednesday. Egypt plans to manufacture a billion Sinovac doses annually under the deal with the Chinese pharmaceutical company, authorities said, a move the country says would make it the Middle East and Africa's "biggest vaccine producer."
