Maimed military personnel, war widows to get Chinese jab

Maimed military personnel, war widows, dependents and ex-servicemen will get the Sinopharm vaccine to be donated by the Chinese military.

Following a request made by the Defence Secretary, General Kamal Gunaratne (Retd.) to Chinese Defence Minister General Wei Fenghe during his official visit to Sri Lanka in April this year, the Ministry of National Defence of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) will donate 300,000 doses of the Sinopharm vaccine on Saturday.

General Gunaratne pointed out the necessity during the bilateral discussion held between the two officials to strengthen the Sri Lankan military since they are performing a dedicated role in combating the spread of the coronavirus.

Accordingly, maimed military personnel, dependents and ex-servicemen are also expected to be vaccinated in the same process.

The Defence Secretary will officially receive the consignment from Chinese Embassy Officials in Sri Lanka, at the Bandaranaike International Airport. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Even China stands upside down for South Asians, they would always take side of the West and western puppet India. I say it again, ideology goes long way than pragmatic thinking in South Asia. I have learned this reality from my uneducated siblings who didn’t even pass GCE O/L. I have my doubts on China’s success in Pakistan and Afghanistan. This is why I keep saying to China to re-educate the people about the Five Eyes countries’ invasions from the 16th century to 21st century, killing 100 – 200 million people on genocides , current struggles of Native Americans, Canadian and Australian Aboriginal people, especially Iraq and Afghanistan war crimes. Sadly, China does not even re-educate its own people in Hong Kong and Taiwan. China is ignoring millions of people who died in North America and Australasia during the colonialism, people who died in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya by lies, Julian Assange’s imprisonment in the UK, Edward Snowden’s political asylum in Russia and my struggles as a writer in the western countries. At the same time China is hoping to achieve great things through Taliban. I strongly believe in occupying the moral high ground and expanding our allies by enlighten the world majority about the West’s atrocities. But the CCP’s strategy is giving loans and BRI. I don’t want to live in China, unless China is willing to educate the people by exposing my struggles as a writer in the western countries. Chinese media refuse to publish my struggles as a writer. Subsequently, I said good bye and left China in September 2019. I have no intention to drumming the CCP’s ideas and leaving behind what I learned for decades by spending most of my time in libraries, plus my hardships as a writer, especially I could not help my mother in her last days and could not attend her funeral. I honestly believe that China cannot win by focusing only on BRI. I have the feeling that the West will having the majority world. Eventually, China will be frustrated with the West and start a nuclear war. That will be the end.
