SAN SALVADOR: El Salvador’s President Nayib Bukele said on Sunday (Apr 4) that China will donate 150,000 Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine doses to the Central American nation, on top of the 2 million Sinovac jabs his government already purchased.

“I received a letter from President Xi Jinping, where he informs me that he will donate 150,000 vaccines against COVID-19 to our country,” Bukele wrote on Twitter.
