The government of China has agreed to grant 1 million doses of Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine to Nepal, a senior Nepali official said Wednesday.

As part of its consistent support to Nepal, the Chinese government will provide 1 million Sinovac vaccines as a grant. Similarly, 300,000 vaccines will be dispatched for the Nepali Army under grant assistance, Nepal's State Minister for Health and Population Umesh Shrestha tweeted.
