Four million doses of Sinopharm vaccine arrive in Sri Lanka

A consignment of four million doses of the Sinopharm vaccine arrived in Sri Lanka today.

The Chinese Embassy in Colombo said that a chartered flight of SriLankan Airlines brought the consignment to Sri Lanka from Beijing.

This is the single largest consignment of vaccines brought to Sri Lanka.

The vaccines were purchased by the Sri Lankan Government from the Chinese manufacturer.

Sri Lanka has so far received 22 million doses of the Sinopharm vaccine. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Yes, 4 million Sinopharm vaccines were purchased when cheaper and more effective brands were available. Hmmm, wonder why ?
