  • In a recent speech, President Xi Jinping said China will share the coronavirus vaccine with the world once it is available.
  • He said the cure will be made for “global public good.”

With scientists across the world still racing to find the cure against the coronavirus, President Xi Jinping has assured that China will share their COVID-19 vaccine with all countries once it is available.

In a recent speech during the 73th session of the World Health Assembly, Xi Jinping vowed “After the research and development of China’s coronavirus vaccine is completed and it is put into use, it will be made a global public good.”

Currently, there are five potential vaccines being developed in the country.

Xi said that this would be China’s contribution against the ongoing pandemic, especially for developing nations. Moreover, he said they will spend $2 billion in global aid against COVID-19 over two years.

“We must always put the people first, for nothing in the world is more precious than people’s lives,” he added. “We also need to continue supporting global research by scientists on the source and transmission routes of the virus.”

According to official reports, the coronavirus’ beginnings has been traced in Wuhan with the first case recorded in December 2019. This has since led to the lockdown of the city in an attempt to prevent the spread of the virus, a pattern that will later be replicated not only across China but across the world.

The country has repeatedly been accused of mishandling the outbreak and for “covering up” precious information about it. Several whistleblowers have also been silenced. On top of that, many test kits, PPEs, and masks from the country have been found defective.

As of May 20, official reports tell us more than 5 million individuals have been infected by the coronavirus, with almost 2 million recoveries and a death toll of over 325,000.
