Another 2 million doses of Sinopharm vaccine arrives in Sri Lanka

Another 2 million doses of the Sinopharm vaccine arrived in Sri Lanka today.

SriLankan Airlines said it airlifted the 2 million doses of Sinopharm vaccines to Sri Lanka from China.

Accordingly, two SriLankan Airlines flights UL869 and UL865 arrived in Colombo this morning with the consignment of vaccines from China.

This is the second-largest batch of vaccines flown to the country.

The national carrier said it is proud to be a part of this national endeavor by transporting temperature sensitive pharmaceutical cargo.

In addition, the airline continues to support the healthcare system by offloading and clearing on a priority basis on arrival in Colombo at the SriLankan Cargo facility. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. This is a short term solution. We have to live with COVID 19. In the long term Sri Lanka cannot afford to buy vaccines. Africa is already facing chaos, because those countries cannot afford to buy vaccines.

    You don’t understand geopolitics, if you think tourism is going to back and Sri Lanka can survive through the tourism industry. Things will not comeback to normal unless there is an assurance western world dominant power is secured. Therefore, highly likely things will get worse.
