The US has donated 4.7 M COVID-19 vaccinations to Pakistan in an attempt to tackle the global pandemic.

The United States of America has now delivered 4.7 million doses of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines to Pakistan. With this, the total number of donated vaccinations has now crossed the mark of 61.5 million.

 

The US Department of State has said in a press release that the donation of these COVID-19 vaccinations is an extension of the global vaccine sharing initiative which is co-led by Gavi, WHO, and CEPI, COVAX. All these reputable names are doing their best to fight against the global pandemic of COVID-19.

A statement from the department mentioned “As part of our ongoing solidarity with the people of Pakistan to combat COVID-19, the United States donated an additional 4.7 million Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine doses via COVAX. In total, we have now donated over 61.5 million vaccines doses to Pakistan.”

Pakistan has successfully crossed a vaccination milestone of providing inoculations to more than 100 Million citizens against COVID-19.

In the light of the recent event and no reported COVID-19 death in the span of two weeks, Pakistan has scrapped all the major restrictions. The country has also shut down the National Command and Operation Center which was set up in March 2020. The main goal of the organization was to provide the general public with updated information about the COVID–19 progress and how the government is handling the situation.

Presently, the statistics on COVID-19 in the country are promising. As there has not been a single death reported on the national level. Furthermore, after the shutting down of NCOC, the public can rely on NIH for official COVID-19 updates.
