Chinese Sinopharm vaccines will arrive in Santa Cruz on Wednesday

An hour ago the Boliviana de Aviación (BoA) plane arrived in China in search of the 500,000 doses of Sinopharm vaccines against the coronavirus. It is the first time that a commercial airliner from the country has landed in Peking (Beijing).

The loading of the material will last five hours. A few minutes ago the syringes donated by the Chinese government (102,400 in total) were loaded.

Then they will enter, before splitting the containers with the Sinopharm vaccines that are waiting in cold rooms. « The vaccines have 96 hours to be in those refrigerated containers, » reported Vice Minister Benjamín Blanco from La Paz.

It is estimated that the return trip will be in less time and will arrive on Wednesday at 7:00 AM to Santa Cruz de la Sierra, after stopover in Madrid, Spain, for maintenance and refueling.

In addition to the vaccines, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, medicines and supplies for the intensive therapy units for the Meco company would be arriving. Blanco pointed out that these supplies are affordable and of high quality, used in China to contain the Covid-19.

«We are also bringing the equipment that the previous transitional government has left abandoned since last June, which were in the embassy, among them respirators (5), masks and 500 biosafety suits (suits). We are taking advantage of the capacity of the plane to bring this equipment and supplies, which in total would be approximately 30 tons, ”said the vice minister.

The air cargo consists of 500,000 doses of vaccines, of which 100,000 are donated by the Chinese government and with very preferential prices, according to the vice minister.

It was also anticipated that, within the national government’s vaccination plan, immediately they arrive, the distribution will be made, one part stays in Santa Cruz, another in La Paz and for the departmental PAIs (Expanded Program of Immunization). “Immediately start vaccination, as soon as possible. When the 20,000 of Sputnik V arrived, the next day the vaccination began. We expect it to be this fast too, in order to first vaccinate health personnel, which are around 179,000 people, and with the rest, start vaccinating the general population, the elderly and people with underlying diseases. This is what we would receive for this month ”, concluded the vice minister.
